La Bamba by Ritchie Valens
Tabbed by Charlie Lin

Since no one tabbed this solo, I decided to tackle it myself. I am absolutely
positive that the notes and rhythm are correct.
I tabbed two versions of this solo. I believe the first version is easier to play
Palm mute the whole song, as to avoid
excessive ringing of open strings. The tempo is 4/4 at around 120 bpm. So those
of you who use Sony Soundforge, I
recommend using time stretch for this section. Good luck and enjoy.
