  2. This is absolutely fantastic instruction and technique! Thank you so much for taking such care, patience and time to walk us all through the details of this awesome, iconic piece. I've been playing since 10 years old, now 56, and always love this song… and now (after much study of your excellent instruction), I can play it nearly flawlessly at speed. Thank you again for the investment of your time and skill on this. What a great feeling to play this now!! : )

  3. What a great sound. May I ask what your rig setup is? Is that a Gibson Les Paul you're playing – what strings – what pedals etc.

  4. hey if I buy the fender stratcast can I also play this kinda music on it.

  5. Great playing and you nailed the feel and tone. What pickups are those in your Les Paul? Cheers

  6. What pedals are used in this song please

  7. Very good!!

  8. Dude!

  11. Your tutorials are AWESOME! I am a long-time bass player (38 years) and just recently started playing guitar in the last few years. I follow your tutorials and have been blowing my friends away!

  12. Found you recently and really really appreciate not only your ability but how easy you make it to learn! Thank you!

  13. Thx for sharing. Beautiful tone and melodic feel. Got it, working on the feel now. Singing it helps a lot.

    Magnifique morceau (de Peter GREEEN, que je vénère!) et superbe interprétation! Merci pour ce cours magistral, mais pas si sûr que je parvienne à me hisser à ce niveau, c'est C.SANTANA, tout de même!

  18. Wow! Although I'm a bit late to the party..I really am blown away by your demo and lesson. Your style of passing on music is fantastic. The tone of your guitar and amp plus your fingers, all the nuances of notes you hit are just spot on to the vibe of the studio version by Carlos. Thank you for all your videos btw as I have enjoyed every last one of them. A while back you covered the solo to a fantastic song by Survivor called "Caught In The Game..Is there any possible way you might relive that song with a lesson such as this one. That would be perfect!

  19. Why would anyone thumbs down ths?
