Tabbed By Nick Wellings,   nickwellings@hotmail.com
This is more or less a transcription of what I think 
Santana has played.Feel free to mess around with it or simplify it

Intro: played in a bright stacatto way with feeling.
Technical Notes:
Add some moody reverb/echo and select a clean warm tone with the
pickup selector 
towards the neck pickup on a stratocaster, or pointing down on
a Les Paul Style guitar.


       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
