Mandolin Magazine Downloads: "The Sheik of Araby" Gypsy Swing & Hot Club Rhythm

"The Sheik of Araby" slow MP3. The slow version includes the lower octave melody with just guitar back up. If you adjust the balance on your player to the right or left, you can hear only melody or only rhythm chords. If you’re listening on headphones and you don’t have a balance or pan control, take one phone off.

"The Sheik of Araby" up-to-speed MP3. The up-to-speed cut is shortened to save space on the server. The full band version from the book is about 3:40 so you can get a serious jam session going. I left off the melody on the band cut so you can be the star! Be sure to practice your chords in addition to the melodies.
