By Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee. By Erika Ender, Luis Fonsi, and Ramon Ayala. Arranged by Jaan Varts. Latin. Guitar Tab. 71 pages. Jaan Varts #5719569. Published by Jaan Varts (A0.985303).

Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee arranged for 3 guitars (rhythm, melody & bass).
This one came out a little trickier than I first expected, so there´s something to learn regardless of your playing level. This song is a good introduction to caribbean feel and groov.
If you´re a beginner then the key to playing this arrangement is simplification - skip the small details and focus on the most essential stuff. The more advanced level = more details. I´ll cover it below for every part.

Bass (the easiest part)
The harmony of the song is Bm-G-A-D, one chord per bar. The bass is playing mostly rhythmic variations on the chord triads. If the main part is too difficult, then focus on just the first notes of the bars. Also take one groov at a time - you can use one groov throughout the song. When you feel confident with the one groov then take another one.

Rhythm (intermediate)
The rhythm part features the same four chords - Bm-G-A-D on different positions and with different grooves. If you need to simplify then use open position chords and use one groove at a time.

Melody (advanced)
The melody features lots of triplets and syncopations. When you´re a beginner, then just try to imitate the rhythm - you don´t have to play all the notes & rhythms. The same goes to all the legatos, slides and other embellishments.
