                Rock Around with Ollie Vee - Buddy Holly
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Buddy Holly
Rock Around with Ollie Vee (1957)
(Sonny Curtis)

Now bonus track on CD: "Buddy Holly" (originally released in 1958)
    and on: "Memorial Collection [Disc 1]"


A real gem! The lead guitar is arguably played by Sonny Curtis 
(http://notfadeaway.dk/buddyholly/that.pdf) with Holly being listed as 
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.

Ok, On the verse that you had trouble with it should go; Tey say they are going to call the cops tonight, and try to put a stop to me tonight, but tonight we are going to rock around with Ollie Vee, Ollie, Ollie Vee. Hope this helps
