Subject: CRD: "That'll Be the Day" (Linda Ronstadt/Buddy Holly)

THAT'LL BE THE DAY (Buddy Holly, Norman Petty, Jerry Alison)
------------------------------------------------------------
[Unfortunately, I only have a recording of the Linda Ronstadt
 version of this song.  But from a book in the library, I learned
 that Holly's original version used these chords with a capo on
 the fifth fret, so it was actually in A.  Ronstadt's is in F,
 so use a capo on the first fret.]

[Holly's version also includes this easy and cool riff:]
