I was wondering if there are some fellow ELvis Fans musicians over here, we all love hear Elvis the most, but there are also some of us who like to play his music too. Anyone here that plays and instrument knows how great it is when you finally get that part of an Elvis tune right, yeah! just like James Burton played it!
There?s a lot of printed ELvis music outvthere, tabs, piano, chords etc. and also some stuff in the net, but the little tricks here and there when you play are what makes the diference isn?t it? All books just say Suspicious Minds in G, however I never got Suspicious Minds right until I found out how to do it with an open tuning, then there you go, just like they did it in the American Studios!
So my idea is first to know if there is some people interested into sharing some musical knowledge about Elvis, about singing for the singers, guitar and bass stuff for the guitar players, piano chord progresions, and so on...
For the TCB moderators it would be great to have space in the forums for that, and if that its not really a posibility, maybe we can have a thread so we can share that and see how it works?
Thanks for your kind reply Jess, let´s hope some other members will be interested....
If anybody needs vocal advice/guidance just ask.
i also play, piano, guitar, bass and not to bad with a violin,
by the way this song was done in my bedroom so excuse the lack of a proper pianio and drums etc.

Thanks for your kind reply and thanks Wild in the Country for sharing your stuff!
I think a section with this kind of information would be fabulous. I play piano, also some guitar, bass and drums, and I wouldn't mind contributing in some way.
It's time some of the players and technical people behind Elvis got some credit too. Listening to Elvis records and hearing players like Floyd Cramer, David Briggs, Dudley Brooks and Glen Hardin have influenced my playing style tremendously. Not that I claim to be anywhere close to where they were!
