Another great 3 chord song from Elvis. Chords below copied from Ultimateguitar.com. Note, where 7ths are mentioned, you can use the non-7th version of the chord as we learnt it if you prefer (that's how I'm doing it in the video) JAILHOUSE ROCK ELVIS PRESLEY G#/ A/ G#/ A/ The warden threw a party in the county jail prison band was there and they began to wail band was jumpin' and the joint began to swing should've heard thosed kocked out jail birds sing Chorus D7 Lets Rock ! A Lets Rock ! E7 D7 Everybody in the whole cell block A D7 A Was a-dancin' to the Jail-house Rock! G#/ A/ G#/ A/ Spider Murphy played the tenor saxophone Little Joe was blowin' on the slide trombone The drummer boy for Illinois went crash, boom, bang ! The whole rhythm section was the purple gang Chorus G#/ A/ G#/ A/ Number forty seven said to Number Three: You're the cutest jailbird I ever did see. I sure would be delighted with your company Come on and do the jailhouse rock with me. Chorus G#/ A/ G#/ A/ The sad sack was a-sittin' on a block of stone Way over in the corner weeping all alone The warden said: " Hey, buddy, don't you be no square. If you can't find a partner use a wooden chair !"

Here's the first guitar club video. Sorry for lack of graphics and fancy back drop . I'm sure things will improve as I go along. Mind on and pause the video and take as long as you need on each bit - weeks if need be. Update; here is a link to the song sheet to go along with this https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ytzrhuuviczh42q/EqokWElv_6

a second song to try, here's the link to the chord sheet again https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ytzrhuuviczh42q/EqokWElv_6 take your time with each part, and do sing along - it's better fun! One thing I forgot to say on the video is that the two notes in the solo are part of a higher version of the A chord, and that's why that position fits in with the rest of the song.

A few of these need a capo.

You can't really hear me on this video at all, but you can see what I'm doing, and that should help if you need it. Here's a link to the sheet; https://www.dropbox.com/s/qr08wdjp9ahzl1q/heaven%27s%20door.pdf If you're giving the solo a go, it should be an octave higher on an electric guitar. Here's a link to another video focused on an idea for the right hand while you play this; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1x9xWoIYyw

There is a bit more to this but you won't struggle to find the rest on well known guitar sites. These are the bits I play in this video; Intro D A D G Bridge G D :|| D E :|| Chorus G A C D / A C D / G A C D / A G E You'll find these chords all beside each other on the circle of fifths https://www.dropbox.com/s/mujmne6rm4o0a0b/5ths.jpg There's a bit about soloing in A with the pentatonic scale here too. Sorry, not much depth, but worth looking into in more detail if you like the sound of it.

The chord pattern, and a fill for Jimi Hendrix' version if this song. Chord sheet and lyrics here, including a few extra fills if you're feeling adventurous. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ifvln18fq3i1xnt/hey%20joe.jpg The chords CGDAE make up the first quarter of a chord tool called The Circle of Fifths. Have a look at it while you're here- very handy to use for learning songs, figuring out other people's patterns and any accompaniment if that's your thing. https://www.dropbox.com/s/mujmne6rm4o0a0b/5ths.jpg
