This will sir your Latin blood. There are several things going on in this number to generate some interest with this very old tune. I have used many cross rhythms which will require counting but add to the interest of the piece. None should get tired because of the included rests. I have inserted measures of silence for effect and a few interesting rhythmic effects.
