Guitar Intro: That'll Be The Day  (Buddy Holly)

         [------Triplets-------------------------------------|
E-----------5------------------------------------------------|

G----------------7----7--5---5--------7--7-------------------|
D-------------------------------7--5--6--6-------------------|
A-------------------------------------7--7-------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------|

This is a simple way that I use to play the intro without using a capo. Buddy used a 
on the 5th fret to record this song. If you use a capo, just slide from the 8th to the 9th 
on the B string to start, and play the B and E strings open.

Very good. Better than the full one. Easy to read.

Good simple approach. I like to slide into a I A major on 5th fret, bend the D on G-string a half step, play the A arpeggio as you release the bend, play C# then V E7
