  • Hi GMC-ers! Welcome to my first Santana style lesson. Carlos Santana is a well known and highly respected guitarist with a distinct Latin style.

    This bossa-nova style lesson is in D minor with a simple modulation at the middle to C minor then back to D minor. In the first part I'll play a D minor scale at the tenth fret, next a C minor at the eight, and then a D harmonic minor back to the Dm.
