This is the seventeenth presentation of the MACT Project. Today we present a son entitled, El Triste, as performed by Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan. This transcription is taken from earlier recordings of Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan. This arrangement, I believe, is the more accessible arrangement, out of the others recorded. When playing with other mariachis, I would usually play this version in 95 % of its entirety. Usually, the only variations I have seen and heard are armonia accents combined with Guitarron phrasing.
Well, here you go. Enjoy!
