You can hammer on/pull off the 12th fret on the high E.

It sounds real cool when you slide into that A-chord from an E like this

4/9
5/10

Then you can play the high E in the 12th fret.

justinguitar.com has an excellent vid on these 'triad' chords as he calls them:

http://www.justinguitar.com/en/CH-008-Triads.php

The term "inversion" comes from the fact that the lowest note in the chords is not the ground note of the chord; the ground note is one of the other two.

This video shows the basic idea, but as you can see there are endless variations to the theme (even including 4 fingers ). Mostly they include tapping additional notes in the scale, or adding lower notes to the chord.

This is not an instrumental version, but there is an instruction by Scotty Moore. There is also couple The Beatles and Brian Setzer songs.

Wise Publications do a marvellous book, Elvis Presley, The Sun Sessions. This is a real gold mine, has the tabs for all the classics. Transcribed by Fred Sokolow and accurate as far as I can hear. Amazon have it. Arf

That's pretty bad soloing.Not very smooth and kinda jerky plus positions are wrong compared to what Scotty played(Scotty's solo is more "linear")There's more to music than playing the right notes(phrasing dynamics timing etc.).It's not that easy to play either.This song and others is why Chet Atkins is in the R&R Hall of Fame.Scotty and a lot of others were heavily Chet inspired.Tabs gotta be somewhere on web.If you were here would show you solo in couple mins..I love these You Tube egomaniacs who have that s..t eatin' grin on their face when they finish playing!Wish they'd keep their crap for Saturdays at GC. The Best "TROLL"

Not so fast to judge tyguy; it's sooo easy to diss people making an honest effort. At least appreciate this is a tutorial for starting guitarists, not a showcase for the guy's chops.
BTW, I agree there: there's more then enough (failing) show-offs on utube already. (that's why I'm not posting there ).

The guy in the vid is actually an accomplished guitarist, playing in some famous British group (lost the name there for a moment). He tones it down on purpose, so he doesn't intimidate students.

Give him some credit will ya!

Here are some sources for That's Alright and rockabilly fingerpicking in general. For learning basic rockabilly fingerpicking, try Rockabilly Guitar DVD one by Jim Weider. He starts off simple and then builds on it. For That's Alright and other Elvis tunes, I like The Guitars of Elvis by Wolf Marshall from Hal Leonard. It's got music, tabs, and a CD featuring slowed down instruction. For music and tab there's Elvis Presley, The King of Rock n' Roll again from Hal Leonard.

The key is to learn Scotty's style, not the notes per se. Do not obsess on learning anyone's version of That's Alright note-for-note. It won't be exactly what Scotty plays anyway. A neglected aspect of Scotty's style is his use of little strums with his fingertips. Obviously Scotty strums the open D shaped A inversion, but he often strums the melody notes at the the end of the measure rather than fingerpicking them. Various Youtube clips illustrate this, but you have to watch Scotty, not someone trying to teach his technique.

My bad.Thought he was another Ego Tube showoff.This is a pretty hard tune and solo though for starting guitarists.If they're just starting maybe 'bout 5 yrs down the road to sound right. The best, "TROLL"
