Carlos Santana’s instantly recognisable guitar style brought the rhythms of Afro-Cuban music to generations of people who might otherwise never have heard them. His soulful playing has inspired guitarists the world over for the last three decades, and continues to do so today.
This guitar workshop is a powerful tool that will help you extend your stockpile of licks and fills and develop your improvisational skills. The combination of musical notation and guitar tablature in this book, together with the backing tracks on the CD, gives you the opportunity to learn eight of Carlos Santana’s most popular tracks note-for-note and then jam with a professional session band. The track listing reflects some of Carlos Santana’s most popular recordings, providing something for guitarists to have fun and improvise with, as well as something to aspire to.
The first eight tracks on the CD are full-length backing tracks, recorded without the lead guitar. The remaning tracks feature the backing tracks with the lead guitar parts added.
