By Jeremy Hammond:
I was just playing around and worked out a fun little arrangement for this traditional song that everyone will recognize.
** EDITOR’S NOTE: **
I couldn’t resist picking this as our Guest Sessions featured video of the week. It’s a fun little song, and a fun little performance by one of our favorite contributors to the site.
We may know this popularly as the “Mexican Hat Dance,” but it is more formally known as “Jarabe tapatio.” It was first compiled in Guadalajaran music professor Jesus Gonzalez Rubio as a medley of Mexican folk music. It has since been honored by many as the national dance of Mexico.
This is your Guest Session electric cover song instrumental video. We hope you’ll enjoy it and hurry back next week for another great contribution!
