Written and recorded by Richie Valens, and based on an old Mexican folk song. The backing is a simple three chord progression C to F to G . (1 1V V ) What makes the song memorable and a joy to play is the rhythm and infectious energy that can be created . This song sounds great on a ukulele, or, as the Mexicans say Ándale, ándale! Un Ukelele !
“ukelele” is the Spanish spelling.
I feel like it’s Saturday again….
Thanks again Karen and Alan, good fun
Been playing the bass riff with this. Neither of you need to worry…I’m the one who keeps playing after you both stop! It’s just that I am so far away you can’t hear it.
Can’t wait for the next gem.
