                Everyday - Buddy Holly
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Buddy Holly and the Crickets
Everyday (1957)
(Buddy Holly/Norman Petty)
Now on: several Greatest Hits collections

One of my all time favourite songs. 

In the original version, solo and outro are played on a celeste (a keyboard 
instrument sounding like a glockenspiel). For guitar, the solo looks 
something like this:

SOLO (no capo: Eb)

The song is in Eb, so I'd suggest using a capo either 1st fret (play: D) or 
3rd fret (play: C). Even with capo you can still play the solo as it doesn't 
go below the 8th fret. 


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Capo 1st fret

Intro | D | D |

D        G              A
Everyday it's a-gettin' closer
D            G             A
Goin' faster than a roller coaster
D                   G       A       D
Love like yours will surely come my way
G        D     A
  A-hey, a-hey-hey

D        G              A
Everyday it's a-gettin' faster
D              G            A
Everyone said, go ahead and ask her
D                   A               D
Love like yours will surely come my way
G        D     D(7)
  A-hey, a-hey-hey

Everyday seems a little longer

Outro (see above)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE

The basic chords are as pointed out above. However, the bass on Holly's
recording suggests different chords in the first verse only - along the
lines of:

D    Bm  Em             A
Everyday it's a-gettin' closer
D     Bm     Em            A
Goin' faster than a roller coaster
D         Bm        Em      A       D
Love like yours will surely come my way
G        D     A
  A-hey, a-hey-hey

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

And here's a second version: Many cover versions add the relative minor
chord. I think it sounds nice. If you want to know what this version 
sounds like, check out my recording here:

Nice try, but...Buddy Holly was pretty simple with his chords...no Bm over "everyday"...or probably anywhere else, for that matter.

Buddy may have been simple with his chords but the bass on his recording clearly plays the relative minor - even though it does so only in the first verse.
