Buddy Holly
Rock Around With Ollie Vee (1957)
(Sonny Curtis)
Now bonus track on CD: "Buddy Holly" (originally released in 1958)

A real gem! The lead guitar is arguably played by Sonny Curtis 
second guitarist but, I must admit, I don't hear another guitar anywhere. 
It's not easy to pin down what is played (and sung!), either. Use this tab 
as a basic suggestion, add variations and adapt it to your own Rockabilly 
style. Have fun!

In the second bar of the opening lick, the "c" (INTRO 1 and 2: B-String, 
13th fret / SOLO: A-string, 3rd fret) has to be bent just a little, making 
it higher than "c" without really reaching the "c#", though. 
In the second half of the parts I mostly hear single notes. Some of the high 
notes are struck very hard creating a slapping effect. I usually play 
a picking pattern there. I put these notes in brackets because they are not 
really there but are still close to the feel of the original. When playing a 
pattern it must be percussive with the 2 and the 4 dampened hard to get the 
beat going without actually producing a tone.
