Europa Ultimate guitar tab

                        "Europa (Earth's Cry, Heaven's Smile)"
                             Original Album "Moonflower"
                   Taken From "Santana The Ultimate Collection"
                           Written by C. Santana, T.Coster 
                            Performed by Carlos Santana
16.8.00

Tabbed by: Nick Wellings,   nickwelllings@hotmail.com

(And boy, does the Earth sure cry...)
Notes: This long piece gets harder towards the end. 
Watch out for insanely quick decsents through scales and 
octave variations, fast bends, trills, and stop bends. 
Remember its really hard to copy and play exactly a 
roiling tab likethis (well it is for me) so leave out 
whatever you like.

       h - hammer on
       p - pull off
       b - bend string up
       r - release bend
       / - slide up
       \ - slide down
       v - vibrato more v's=more vib
       t - right hand tap
       x - play 'note' with heavy damping
      (b)=microbend: too quick to be noticed really.
          Leave it out if you like:)



But anyhow, it starts of quite sedated.....
