My favorite Santana song changes every day, and today it is Open Invitation. Its got some great riffage that translates well when played with mega gain biggrin.gif Its also got a fantastic multi-stage guitar solo thats pure Santana.

Mine is Samba Pa'Ti, but I also love Black Magic Woman since we play it in my cover band.

Black Magic Woman is great!
Smooth is Great! Maria Maria is great!
But, Put your lights is my favourite. Check the awesome solo (starting 2:20) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcoP8c7pNVc

Santana is a great player. He is different that other guitarist. I love 'his' genre.
I would suggest you all check him out once in a while!
