From the recording El Samuraichi
Maleguena - This is the only piece on “El Samuraichi” that I did not write. There was a music store I used to hang out in as a kid and a peer of mine would be there quite often also. His dad played classical guitar and I would always hear this other kid playing the main theme from Maleguena. I always thought it was SO cool. I must have asked him a million times what it is called…Mala-what? I could never remember it...but of course I knew every lyric to every KISS song. I have always loved this piece and wanted to put at least one traditional Flamenco song on my CD. Maleguena has been done many times by many guitarists. I hope my take on it retains some of the traditional aspects as well as bring a new version to light.
