Are You Lonesome Tonight?, written by Roy Turk and Lou Handman in 1926, was another huge hit for Elvis Presley in 1960, after his two-year service in the US Army.
It’s a beautiful ballad in ¾ and features an arrangement in the key of C, which makes it very doable for most guitar players.
We take a close look at the chords, the strumming with swing feel, and the progression, including the little intro bass lines and (vocal)harmony line in the outro.
