    Here is something that u can try:-

    -Dont play the song on exact same scale as the original. Play it in other scale. lower Higher whatever everyone is comfortable with. But difference should be noticeable.
    -Add melody line with the vocals.
    -For solos dont know how experienced you guitar player is but tell him tht. Just go with the feel of the song wherever possible.
    -Add new parts to the song.. Some more short solos in between..Extend rhythm and chorus section a bit. Add some nice groove some nice beats , some catchy riffs in between.
    -Play a different percussion which is not in the original song. But maintain the same beat or rhythm.
    -Change the strumming style..

    Its a latin rock song... A bit of funk with auto wah would sound over the top than the usual distorted chord riffing...
    All I wanted was a gun.... And they handed me a guitar instead....
