This song is one of many in the past that is based around the classic Latin American chord progression based in the harmonic minor scale. It's great fun to play as it's just three chords throughout the entire song that you can really groove on!
Before we start, be sure to add the capo to the third fret so that you can play nice easy chord shapes. We are using Em / C / B7 /// in that order. Here are the chords:
The important thing with the groove is to change to the B7 just before the start of the bar. After thatm you can either use the pick, or fingerstyle to get the song together. It is therefor well worth practicing just the 3 basic hits of the chords, without any extra rhythm, as shown here:
You've now completed and taken a huge step forwards in your guitar playing journey.
Feel free to bask in glory for a while, or go ahead and try another course if you're hungry for more.
