LA CUCARACHA (Mexican Folk Song) - 3 GUITARS OR LARGE ENSEMBLE
For Classical or Acoustic Guitar - sometimes it's erroneously listed here as Electric Guitar.

Derek Hasted writes "This piece is so well-known, even if the English translation to the title comes as a bit of a surprise to some people!

Ideal for school concerts, for school guitar lessons and for an adult ensemble with limited experience.

As with all well-established public domain Folk Songs, there is a plethora of versions - countless changes to the rhythm, to the mix of verse and chorus, and to the actual words themselves. So here’s another one to add to the collection - my arrangement for 3 early intermediate guitars.

Ideal for a mixed ability trio or large ensemble, Guitar 3 plays a steady bass line against which the syncopated tune can work its magic. The tune, on Guitar 1, goes up to top E on fret 12, but it’s comfortable under the fingers. Guitar 2 provides both a countermelody and some cheeky imitation.

I hope you enjoy this piece!"

This is one of a large and growing range of accessible ensembles from experienced arranger Derek Hasted, and is supplied as full score and parts. Derek's website at www.derek-hasted.co.uk/smp lists all his arrangements by title and by "number of instruments", with links to soundclips and sample score.
