EX­AM­PLE 5 scotty Moore style

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY: RHYTHM -

Scotty Moore is fa­mous for his in­no­va­tive early work with Elvis, and this ex­am­ple is in­spired by his work. This idea can be played with a thumb pick, which helps to ac­cen­tu­ate the attack of the bass notes. You may also wish to ex­per­i­ment with play­ing this one with hy­brid pick­ing. The key el­e­ment is that the bass note A is on each of the four beats in the bar. Start slowly and make sure the pat­tern is clean with a nice feel be­fore ramp­ing up the tempo.
