'Summertime Blues' By Eddie Cochran

This is a very simple song to play and easily recognised.
I understand that the classic version was recorded
using a Gretsch Chet Atkins electric for the 'lead'
and a Martin D-18 (acoustic dreadnought) for the
'scratch' rhythm. And I don't mean the Who's cover of
it.

Notes:
	h  = hammer on
	,  = 1/4 beat rest
	-  = No accompaniment

	Chord shapes:

	F		Bb		C

	1		1		3
	1		3		5
	2		3		5
	3		3		5
	3		1		3
	1		x		x

A (Riff 1) (X2)|---------------------------------||---------------------------------||---------------------------------||---------------------------------||---------------------------------||--0-h1--1--1--1---0-h1--1--1--1--|
These are tied half notes (quavers) B Chord sequence (Chords) F F F Bb , , , C C C Bb Where played twice there is an additional 1 bar rest at the end of the first sequence before repeating it.
C (Riff 2) (X2)|---------------------------------||---------------------------------||---------------------------------||---------------------------------||--0-h1--1--1--1---0-h1--1--1--1--||---------------------------------|
These are also tied half notes (quavers) Final note: Where there are brackets, you should ignore the parts inside them if playing solo. In the original there are two guitars, and at these points the two overlap. Summertime Blues, as performed by Eddie Cochran: NOTE THAT THE LETTERS REFER TO THE ABOVE LABELLED SECTIONS, !NOT CHORDS!
