GUANTANAMERA - Backing Track
About the guitar accompaniment of the song, it runs on three chords only, G/C7/D7. There are two ways: an easy accompaniment in strumming and another in fingerstyle with ghost notes.

This is the basic chords progression of the song, if you are a beginner you can try to play them and practise to the changes of position.
