I'm curious how others approach an extremely simple song that most of us have played at some point and that doesn't really have a "standard" bassline or style because it's played in many different cultures... so let's take "Guantanamera". In a way it's a challenge. How do you give the harmony a sense of direction while it's really just going in small circles? How to avoid the temptation to overplay without making it sound too monotonous? What style and rhythm do you like best? Possibly a dumb thread unworthy of discussion... but then again it's songs like this that put food on many of our tables.
