Carlos Santana is one of Guitar Player's most frequently covered artists. Revered by guitarists for his tone and brilliant sense of melody, Santana has been extremely giving in his Guitar Player interviews, sharing his gear secrets, technical approaches, musical influences, and the building blocks of his sound. Here, collected in one volume, are all of Santana's interviews, from his first post-Woodstock discussion to detailing the popular juggernaut that was 1999's Supernatural to the masterful seminar he gave on creativity in 2008. Also included are style lessons and licks from Guitar Player's respected staff of music writers and transcribers that reveal all the voodoo that explodes from Santana's fingers.
