Hello to all members and moderators,
I'm interested in playing spanish/mexican songs (a sickness I got from watching the Robert Rodriguez movies) and I wonder if you know any good sites about it, or anywhere I could get tabs (with timing) or notes.

Thanks

I don't know any site, but I'll make a tab for Marleguena :D

the chord are E, A. Pretty fun to mix in strumming and picking

I don't follow my dreams, I just ask em' where they're going and catch up with them later.

Almost - the chords are E and Am.

Do a Goggle Search for Flamenco music - should find you plenty of sites with some easy tabs.

Best,

A :-)

Mel Bay publishes a book of Mexican songs for guitar. Title is Music of Mexico for Acoustic Guitar - Volume 1, by Ruben Delgado. Publication number is MB94863BCD. It comes with a CD so you can hear what the songs should sound like. Book shows tablature under each staff of standard notation. MSRP is $19.95.

If you want to hear some Mexican pickin', listen to a recording by Antonio Bribiesca. He plays (played?) an interesting style, using a classical guitar. My favorite Mexican guitarist. His style uses a lot of thirds, with some vibrato and some reverb. Very pretty.

maybe to get you started you could play with this

Am, E, E, Am

Dm, Am, E, Am

it sounds spanish to me.

You can dance, you can dance, everybody look at your pants.

I don't know if this will be really helpful but this is one site that I use for flamenco. It has a lot of tabs if you scroll down and they are all in Tabledit but you can view and listen to them in tefview instead (the midi files on the page I believe were created by tabledit). Tefview is small and free .
