Smooth Chords

Ok so I love playing this song, its allot of fun. This song is NOT easy to play 
correctly because of how its played.  Its what's called Vamp, a spanish style i 
believe from Cuba. so ill try to explain it best as i can. another reason it can 
be hard is because of the polyrhythm between the lyrics and the chords. if ya got 
any questions ask

So soft and so totally... ROUND! and round
