LA BAMBA ~~~~~~~~
Transcribed by: Nick Masiewicki
Traditional Mexican folk song, as played by I forget whom during the '50s or '60s. If anyone knows, please e-mail me.
My English teacher taught me how to play this. Here's my transcription. One guitar plays the tab, the other plays the chords:
C F G C F G |---------------3-3-------------------------3-3---------------| Play |---3---------------2-----------3---------------2-------------| this |-----2---3-----------0-3-3-2-0---2---3-----------0-3-3-2-0---| thru- |-------0---2-----------------------0---2---------------------| out the

Para bailar La Bamba Para bailar La Bamba se necessita una poca de gracia Una poca de gracia y otra cosita y arriba y arriba Ay arriba y arriba por ti sere por ti sere por ti sere Yo no soy marinero soy capitan soy capitan soy capitan
Bamba la Bamba Bamba la Bamba Bamba la Bamba Bamba la Bamba Ba------------
Repeat the whole thing. I believe the traditional lyrics are already in OLGA. I hope this is correct. E-mail any corrections. If anyone knows what recording I'm talking about, tab out the solo if you can. I'll be workin' on it.
