Ritchie Valens - Come On Lets Go tab

Song: Come on Lets Go
Album: Ritchie Valens
Tuning: Standard

Easily, one of my top 5 favorite songs of all time. 
Such a nice, warm, upbeat song that takes me back to the 1950's 
even though I was born waaay after that time. Ritchie will
always hold a special place because he grew up
about 5 minutes away from me and he paved the way
for latinos in the rock n roll scene. This song just makes you 
want to take your girl out on your 1957 chevy bel-air over to
the malt shop or the drive in theater while sporting your 
leather jacket. Anyway, easy easy song here. Basic I,IV,V 
progression with the A,D and E chords. 3rd song off
of his first album. Strums are not exact.
Switch to the neck pick up (the up position) to get the warm
effect of the song. Listen for the changes. Let's go!!
