Elvis Presley — Blue Suede Shoes (ver 2) bass tabs

Title:      Blue Suede Shoes
Artist: Elvis Presley
Tabbed by: Stephane Lapointe (slapointe11@sympatico.ca)
Date: July 2003

The King is dead but not his music!
Every bass player should have played at least one time
in his life such a song based on a very common blues riff.

I found no instance of a bass tab for this song on the Web.
The timing is correctly tabbed.

Thanks to email any corrections, improvements or comments
to slapointe11@sympatico.ca
Also, feel free to tell me if you like this tab.

I didn't try to figure out the bass riff during the second guitar solo.

during the first guitar solo.
