Thread Name: lyr/chords: Cancion Mixteca
Subject: RE: Chord Req: Cancion Mixteca chords required
OK, here's an attempt. All the disclaimers from my last post apply, and I'll add one: not being a very good guitar player *and* not having access to one at work, these chords are guesses. If it seems wrong, it probably is.

I tried to err by omission -- in other words, I took a deliberately spartan approach to chord changes. You don't need many; the tune has so many inherent chord runs that it defines itself.

Did you notics there's a tablature line underlaying the dots in the sheet music I linked to? It's in a guitar tuning I don't use, but it might help you come up with alternates to the chords I've used here:

Cancion Mixteca

¡Qué [G] lejos estoy del suelo donde he na[D7]cido,

in[D]mensa nostalgia in[D7]vade mi pensa[G]miento,

y al verme tan solo y [G7] triste cual hoja al [Am] vien[C]to, [Am]

quisiera llo[G]rar, quisiera mo[D7]rir de sentimien[G]to! [D]



¡0h tierra del sol, [D7] suspiro por [G] verte [D]

ahora que [D7] lejos yo vivo sin luz, sin a[G]mor,

y al verme tan solo y [G7] triste cual hoja al [Am] vien[C] to, [Am]

quisiera llo[G]rar, quisiera mo[D7]rir de sentimien[G]to!
