I am hoping to eventually get here. Easy to understand and does a great job capturing the sound of Santana.
I like the patience with his repeating with such a very steady, yet slows down enough for heart desires for the Santana fans. I Really appreciate it. Thank You.
The problem with a lot of instructions is the lack of synthetic application. Here, the strength of this lesson is the joining of the scale, phrasing that transcends the scale AND an understanding of the chords necessary to utilize it. Kudos
