In this video we cover how to play all the lead and rhythm parts to Jailhouse Rock by Elvis Presley, as played by his guitarist Scotty Moore!

This song uses just 4 chords throughout. It has a basic blues riff and a simple solo, but the techniques needed to play these make this song at an intermediate level.

This tutorial is in standard tuning. To jam along with the original recording, tune down 1/2 a step to Eb tuning, which you can learn how to do here.
