-Repeat Chorus-

I play the begining of song with a guitar riff similar to the Waylon Jennings medly
version. You can hear Buddy slide the open D chord up to E but at the end of the verses
he plays open E almost skipping the A. Buddy had such a great sense of rhythm and timing.
I read that Buddy Holly's mother partially wrote this song but was not credited. It was
recorded at the Officers mess at Tinker AFB while Buddy was on a day off from touring.
All the background vocals were added later. The drummer JI Allison was trying to play a
beat similar to Little Richards Lucille and I think thats what makes the intro sound so
great.

About the artist behind Maybe Baby Tab:

Charles Hardin "Buddy" Holley (September 7, 1936 – February 3, 1959)[1] was an American singer-songwriter and a pioneer of rock and roll. The change of spelling of "Holley" to "Holly" came about because of an error in a contract he was asked to sign, listing him as Buddy Holly.[1] That spelling was then adopted for his professional career.

Although his success lasted only a year and a half before his death in an airplane crash, Holly is described by critic Bruce Eder as "the single most influential creative force in early rock and roll."[2] His works and innovations were copied by his contemporaries and later musicians, notably The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, and exerted a profound influence on popular music. In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Holly #13 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.[3]
