We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I used to have what I think was that exact same arrangement. I wonder if it's still hiding somewhere in my piano bench? It's a good one for kids; it sounds lots harder than it really is. Not that I ever played it as well as she.
Here's the 'other' Malaguena, actually a different title but one oft confused with Navarro's piece. Everything about it is in the first comment, by 'chungmississippi'. The singer Javier Solis has a traditional three piece Mariachi band behind him --and what they are doing, behind Solis' wonderous pure Mexicana folk voice, is strangely powerful and sort of hypnotic (thru headphones, at least, to pick up the bottom). IMHO, anyhoo --
--i told y'all wrong --there's a full Mariachi ensemble behind him --but up close to the Solis mike, and alone with him during the middle and finale when Solis breaks falsetto and the strong rhythm guitars start driving, it's the basic three --a classical, a high-pitch five string, and a big box bass --driving the song --with the three guitar players singing harmony.
--it does for a fact --whatever is simple, exuberant, full happy or sad, won or lost in the great gambles of lovin' and fightin' --that's your Mariachi ethos, standing in the street proclaiming 'here we are and here we belong'.
