New Graceland Blog - Elvis Presley, the Musician

Elvis Presley built an legendary career around his unforgettable voice, but it wasn't his only instrument.


He played guitar, bass and piano, and often toyed with instruments like the drums, accordion and ukulele. While he couldn't read or write music and had no formal lessons, he was a natural musician and played everything by ear. He could often hear a song, pick up an instrument, and play. He often played an instrument in his recordings, and always produced his own music. Elvis was simply born to create music.


Endlessly creative, Elvis often jumped at the chance to play around with whatever musical instruments were available.
