LOS RANCHEROS BY ADAM AND THE ANTS FROM THE CLASSIC ALBUM 
'KINGS OF THE WILD FRONTIER'. WRITTEN BY ADAM ANT AND MARCO PIRRONI. 

I'VE JUST TAKEN THE BONES OF THE SONG TO GET IT DOWN IF YOU WANT TO LISTEN AND ADD ALL THE
OTHER GUITARS DOING THEIR THING BY ALL MEANS DO SO I HAVENT GOT THE PATIENCE !!!!

ON THE RECORDING THERE IS A SMALL BASS RIFF/DRUMS PATTEN IN THE INTRO BUT 
YOU CAN GLOSS OVER THIS IF YOU JUST WANT THE GUITAR BIT.
