“La Bamba” by Richie Valens (and Los Lobos) is a great example of using major scale patterns for guitar. The opening riff is played in C major and includes double-stops, third intervals and a 1 4 5 chord progression. Follow along using the free guitar tab below.
Thanks for the wonderful lesson! I really like your teaching style. I was able to pick up on the more difficult aspects of the song with your help. Can’t wait for the next installment!
You’re the best, Desi!
Absolutely awesome. Great material. You and Steve K. are the “Dynamic Duo”. Thanks so much.
