EXAMPLE 5 scotty Moore style
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.
