Hey friends! Here’s a guitar lesson teaching you how to play the Elvis classic “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” from his 1961 album (and film) Blue Hawaii. This lesson is focused around a beginner-friendly, strummed version of the song — aimed to make things as approachable as possible. I’ll be using no capo in my video lesson, just to ensure those of you without capos can play along — but note you’ll need to add a capo on 2nd fret (and use the chords I show) to play along with Elvis’ album version. I’ll also explain simple ways to play some of the more tricky chords (F and B7), and likewise show you a handful of strumming patterns — some of which are great if strumming gives you trouble. Thanks to all of you who requested this classic song… I hope you enjoy!
