Watch the Scotty Moore's Train online guitar lesson by Walter Broes from Rock, Billy, & Boogie Guidebook
Elvis Presley’s records on the Sun label are really ground zero for rockabilly music, a genre defining moment. The guitar parts and licks that Presley’s guitar player, Scotty Moore, came up with are some of the most influential and imitated in rockabilly guitar. “Mystery Train” is a great tune to learn, as it'll introduces you to a finger picked alternating bass pattern and schools you in the aesthetics of rockabilly guitar. Pay close attention to the relaxed, laid back feel of this track, and don't rush it.
