Freebie Friday! Easy piano arrangement of Mardi Gras Mambo

It’s that time of year. The first (and arguably the best) parade of the Mardi Gras season is happening this weekend, so, as a personal celebration, I decided to create and share an easy piano version of the Mardi Gras classic “Mardi Gras Mambo.” You can hear it below as performed by The Hawketts:

As with all New Orleans’ music, the rhythm is the only thing that might be a little tricky for beginners. The music uses the triads C, F, and G , and G7  in the positions as below as shown in cadence:

C major cadence (using G7 chord)

It also includes dotted quarter notes, 8th notes, syncopation, and tied notes.

As always, it’s available on my website here. And here’s a preview:
