Guantanamera

As made famous by: The Sandpipers

Lesson Info

In this tutorial we are going to learn how to play "Guantanamera" as performed by The Sandpipers. This patriotic Cuban song has a great groove and features a simple chord progression, using two guitars, that goes a long way. While in the recording, there are lots of layers of different types of guitars we will be using one acoustic guitar and one nylon string. Guitar #1, our acoustic, will play all the melodies you hear all throughout the song. Guitar #2, our nylon string in Dropped D tuning, plays open string chords and guides the flow of the song.
