Kalimba Americana for the Alto Kalimba
Cielito Lindo - Basic

America is a great country in large part because of its diversity - we have people from every country on earth. And if you need a new idea, come to America to find it. My idea: we need everybody to get us through the stuff that is going to be coming around, so let's be civil now.

To celebrate America, I have just released a set of 30 songs in tablature - Kalimba Americana - for the Alto kalimba. And to show you what is available, here is the Mexican Ranchera song Cielito Lindo. BTW, I know this song as "Ai, yi, yi yi, I am the Frito Bandito!" It was on TV when I was 4 years old, but was pulled when the Frito Lay company realized their caricature of a Mexican thief was offensive to a lot of people who were not four years old.

This week I provide you with the BASIC version of Cielito Lindo in PDF Tablature as well as Cielito Lindo in KTabS Tablature. Next week we'll get advanced.
