EX­AM­PLE PLAY­ING TIPS

Cd track 43

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

One of Car­los San­tana’s main traits is play­ing long, sus­tained string bends that very rarely have vi­brato - some­thing that will seem very strange to many if not most gui­tarists. So there is de­lib­er­ately no vi­brato in any of the phrases this month, so make sure that you try to avoid it if you want to sound like Car­los. In gen­eral, feel free to use whichever fin­gers are com­fort­able for each phrase and try to use al­ter­nate pick­ing for the fast runs in bars 35, 36 and 41.
