8 Bars. No Barred chords. Several note and chord suspension. Bar has a series of right hand (mimi) on one string. Bar has a series of thumb bass notes on a single string. Las Hachas or the sword is not a difficult piece to learn. I find it a good warn up song being a short 8 bar song that uses pima for the right hand.
