                        SUMMERTIME BLUES - Ritchie Valens
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Keep in mind I'm barely 13 & started playing guitar less than a year ago. I
tabbed it based on the way Ritchie Valens himself played it at his middle school
concert recorded on The Ritchie Valens Story, a great CD. Feal free to e-mail any
comments to me. Thanx!

As stated at the top of the tab, Ritchie sang this song at a concert which was recorded live. It was released on a compilation CD by Delfi in 1993.
