'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

These are tied half notes (quavers)

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.

|---------------------------------|

|--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.
