Today we're checking out "Love Me Tender" by Elvis, which is a slow, strummy ballad with some really interesting chord changes throughout the song.

We're also going to check out some beginner walking basslines in the choruses and in the verses we'll be checking out an alternating baseline, very stylistically typical.

One of the most important lesson to take away from a song like this, especially for guitar players, is how to properly back a singer with no other accompaniment other than acoustic guitar.
