I play regularly in a pub which, for reasons I know not, often gets drop-in Spanish tourists.

I know very few Spanish tunes and they are all from peripheral parts of the country. It would be nice to play stuff these visitors know. (Mostly they are well educated, open-minded and in their 30s).

Anyone know some session-friendly[*] Spanish tunes that would be recognizable to virtually any Spaniard?

[*] i.e. no guitar-thrashing flamenco wank.

You could check out Muiñeira tunes from Galicia (North-west Spain). There are several on this website https://thesession.org/. They are a bit like jigs.

I don't know if the tunes would be recognisable to most Spaniards but the band Felpeyu, from the Celtic Asturian area of Spain, played some beautiful tunes. Cuquina was one we learned at a workshop here in Australia. I can post the abc of it if it's the type of thing you're after.

What a lovely idea Jack. I attended a session that had seasonal Romanian farm workers - they came with the farmer who employed them. They liked anything from the Titanic - and the one Romanian tune I knew.
Sorry - not sure about Spanish tunes.

You can find some lyrics and some recordings here (no sheet music), some there, some scores there.
