I want more spanish guitar covers of popular american songs. Give them to me.

So I've been listening to the Gipsy Kings' Hotel California on repeat. I love that song. What other examples of stuff like that can you give me with pop songs from the USA?

You night like the California Guitar Trio, who do Bohemian Rhapsody among others. No lyrics but the style is similar.

Most things by Igor Presnyakov? Not flamenco, but a badass of classical guitar.

Jose Feliciano's "Light My Fire" charted almost as high as The Doors' version.

Heavy Mellow:
Nothing Else Matters (Metallica)
I am a Viking (Yngwie Malmsteen)

James Clarkston:

Seu Jorge is Portuguese but does a bit of this style of thing. (If you saw The Life Aquatic, he's the guy singing David Bowie covers.) His other music is great too.

Well, there's Mariachi El Bronx's cover of Prince's "I Would Die 4 U."
