Lesson notes

Love Me Tender is another No. 1 hit song recorded by Elvis Presley in 1956, and became the title of his first movie!

This lesson will look at the original recording as well as the version that Presley performed in his later years. The arrangement is done in the key of D, although it does feature several chords out of this key. The alternating bass notes in the song give you the opportunity to play it using finger style techniques or with a pick, whichever you need most practice with.

There is a segment included on how to play the song in G if that accommodates your vocal range better.
