Lesson notes

Not Fade Away is one of Buddy Holly’s most recognized and covered tunes. It really just consists of a quick syncopated chord change that is played over E and A chords, then A and D. The Rolling Stones released their version as a single in 1964 and The Grateful Dead kept it in steady rotation throughout their career. The lesson teaches Buddy’s strumming pattern as well as the short solo.
