Welcome to another one of my easy to play lessons. Today, I have a real special song for you, one of Elvis Presley’s classics and probably his best known song, it is called “Love me Tender” and I got it down to a key of C for you and I can guarantee you, with a little bit of practice, you will be playing this song in no time. Okay, I am just going to go through the first part to show you what we are going to learn and then we will slow it right down note by note, okay.
Okay, that is the part we are going to learn first. Okay, we will start off with the chords first and we are going to use a C chord. Okay, so you grab your C down here, use your Brad spread every second note. That will give you a C chord. Okay, we are going to use a D. You start to take your D note at this black one and your A up here. That will give you the D chord and then we are also going to use a G, so find your G. Use your Brad spread and then I will give you the G chord, okay. So in three chords, we are going to use in it. Right hand, we are going to start here on this G note here, okay so we are down here on the chords. So, just go up to the next octave starting off with here okay and go like this.
Okay, do that again starting here on a G okay. Okay pretty simple right. Let us put some chords with it this time. Okay, we are going to use a C to start off with. Okay we are starting here remember, okay.
Go up to your D and to a G and back to your C. Okay, let us do that again starting with your C chord and we are starting here okay. Go up to your D and to a G. Okay, leaving off that is half the song.
Okay, now we are in the second half of the song, the chorus. Okay, I will just go up through it once for you so you get an idea what it sounds like.
Okay, chord wise, we have got our C in there, okay. We are going to use an E this time, so if you grab your E note here, we are going to use this black and this white note here which is a B, okay. That is your B chord, okay. We are also going to use an F, so there is your F note. Your Brad spread. There is also an Fm in here so, I will get my fingers out of the way here. If you take your middle finger and move it to this black note that makes the F into a minor.
So you can hear the difference there, okay. And it is also going to be an A chord. Okay, so there is your A note. We are going to use this black note and this white note, C. Okay, so that is you’re a chord. Okay, we will go through them slowly as we go through this okay.
The right hand starts off right here on this E note okay and you are going to hit it quite a few times here. You have to think of the song in your head, okay.
It is actually very simple. The key thing is to get the rate number in here, but the number of beats you are going to hit here but you pretty well have to sing that to yourself out louder to yourself if you are singing is as bad as mine. Okay, so love me tender, love me blue.
Okay, that is the right hand. Let us move over to the chords for it now, okay. We are going to start off with a C then we are going to go up to our E, okay. These two, okay then we are going to go through the F then the F minor. Back to your C. Okay, let us do that part over again, okay. So we are going to keep in the E note down here with our continuous hitting, we are going to keep changing our chords though, okay. Just listen to it in your head and you will get it, okay.
And then your E, F, F minor, okay next part is we are going to go up to our A. Here is your A and then back to a D and your G, going back to a C. Okay let us go through that whole section again, okay.
Up to an F, F minor and a C up to an A, down to a D, up to a G. Okay, that is the whole song and just practice a few times and play it nice and slow and then as you feel more comfortable, speed it up a little bit. Put a nice little beat into it and you will do just fine. Okay good luck with it.
