La Bamba
Evan Weatherford is here to teach you the classic we all know as "La Bamba." "La Bamba" is actually a Mexican folk song from the state of Veracruz, and was only made popular by Ritchie Valens. Rolling Stone ranked it #345 in the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Los Lobos actually recorded the version for the 1987 film,”La Bamba”.

Evan plays an Gibson USA Les Paul Deluxe in this lesson.
