5. Fever

fever elvis presley

Fever is a song that was originally written by Eddie Cooley and Otis Blackwell and was first recorded by Little Willie John in 1956. However, Elvis Presley recorded his version of "Fever" in 1960.

Elvis's version of "Fever" is slightly different from the original. While Little Willie John's version had a more traditional R&B arrangement, Elvis's rendition infused his signature rock 'n' roll style into the song.

Elvis Presley's cover of "Fever" was included on his album "Elvis Is Back!," which was released in 1960. The album marked his return to the music scene after serving in the US Army.

Elvis's version of "Fever" has been well-regarded and remains a notable entry in his discography. It showcased his vocal versatility and ability to put his own stamp on classic songs, making them unique to his style.

This song is very different than most because you'll be playing some bass riffs throughout the singing in the verses. The only rhythm is a few quick 1-2-3-4-5-6-7 drum roll as you'll see. Then it's back onto the bass playing.

There are only three chords in this one and they are C-G7- and a Cm

I'm putting in an improvised picking break but you can just keep doing rhythm if you'd like. The song has been recorded by many artists thru the years, including Elvis.

In the original key of D, this one is very high vocally. So my version here is in the key of G, followed by the C, D and A7 chords.For rhythm in this, just play a steady up and down but the G chord is alternating with a C/G in the bass as you'll see in the demo.There is a bit of picking in one segment in this song.
