La isla bonita guitar chords

“La Isla Bonita” (Spanish pronunciation: [la ˈizla βoˈnita]; English: “The Beautiful Island”) is a song by the American singer Madonna from her third studio album True Blue (1986). She and Patrick Leonard co-wrote and co-produced the song, and Bruce Gaitsch provided additional songwriting. Sire Records released it as the album’s final single on February 25, 1987. The instrumental version of the song was first offered to Michael Jackson before Madonna both accepted it and wrote the lyrics and melody. “La Isla Bonita” is noted for being the first Madonna song to contain Latino influences, with arrangements of Cuban drums and Spanish guitar, maracas, harmonicas and a mix of synthesized and real drumming. The lyrics of the song tell about a “beautiful island” and according to Madonna, was a tribute to the beauty of the Latinos.
