Let It Be – The Beatles (Cuatro Cover)

Almost everybody could recognize this song right away, no matter which instrument is playing it.  This famous Beatles’ song was included in their 12th album “Let it Be” in 1970.

This version of Let It Be is played with a south american Cuatro.  The main difference with other kind of instruments like the Ukelele is that the last string is tuned an octave lower, so the melody has to be produced only using the 2nd and 3rd strings


This is an real good way of grasping how the Cuatro sounds and how it could be used to play famous songs from Pop music.
