Watch the No Lefts, Alright online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from 50 Rockabilly Licks You MUST Know

This is based on the rhythm guitar part for Elvis’ That’s Alright Mamma, played by Scotty Moore. This is a super identifiable guitar part that is just very different from anything else that was going on at the time, and a testament to Scotty’s great playing. He could always find a way to play something simple that was extremely hook-y. Here we're going to use three inversions of a major chord. By changing the voicings and your position on the guitar neck you end up creating a melody with a wider range and therefore more dynamic.
