SOLO: Can’t Help Falling in Love

“Can’t Help Falling in Love”

This tune originally performed by Elvis Presley, has become a popular cover song.

This arrangement is of great interest to the beginning guitar player because:

  • It uses nearly all of the main open chords used in C major.
  • It features a relaxed tempo.
  • The meter is 6/8, giving the learner an early introduction to compound meters.
  • The vocal melody range is limited, and most can sing along.
  • The song is based on a classic dating to 1784 (Plaisir d'amour), yet was redone in 1961 and covered by the likes of Elvis, and remains a popular song today.
