Let's Wish A Happy Birthday to our legendary guitarist Mr. CARLOS SANTANA born 20 July 1947 is a Maxican American guitarist, musician, songwriter. With his band SANTANA, which pioneered a fusion of rock and Latin American music. The band's sound featured his melodic, blues-based guitar lines set against Latin and African rhythms featuring percussion instruments. He has also recorded a series of exploratory solo albums and collaborations with other musicians that expand upon his basic musical style. He has won 10 Grammy Awards and three Latin Grammy Awards. There are several outstanding features of Santana's playing technique that help to produce his unique signature. One of the most obvious is his use of long, sustained notes without vibrato. Carlos rarely employs vibrato. When he does, it is often the less-used vertical vibrato (moving the finger back and forth in parallel with the neck, as opposed to perpindicular to the neck). And his renowned sustained notes, held with a "straight tone" (sans vibrato), immediately identify him. His trills are often unique, as well. Santana has a way of hitting an initial grace note, quickly hammering on to a higher note, then pulling off to the original note. Although normally contained within a typical pentatonic scale, these trademark trills add a distinctively Latin flavor to his melodies. In this video clip Santana is performing "OYE COMO VA" (Hey, How's It Going) song. Latin-music legend Tito Puente wrote and recorded "Oye Como Va" in 1963, but it's Santana's souped-up version from their second album, Abraxas, that most people know. Santana actually stick pretty close to Puente's original melody, replacing the mambo-style horns with searing guitar lines and rich organ fills. The song has the classic rhythm and tempo of cha-cha-cha.
