Jasmine Flower

My super simple guitarist arrangement of Jasmine Flower

Mo Li Hua (Chinese: 茉莉花; pinyin: Mòlìhuā or Mòlihuā; lit. 'Jasmine Flower') is a popular Chinese folk song from the Jiangnan region. The song dates back to the 18th century. Over time, many regional variations were created, and the song gained popularity both in China and abroad.

It has been used during events such as 2004 Summer Olympics, 2008 Summer Olympics and 2010 Shanghai Expo opening ceremony, and more controversially during the 2011 Chinese protests.

The pentaphonic scale of the melody make the song easy to use open strings on guitar. I made a simple arrangement many years ago for my beginning level guitar students.
