From: Ryan Izzo 
Subject: TAB: 'Oye Como Va' by 'Santana'

This cha-cha-cha was written by the great timbalero Tito Puente 
but the most popular version by far is Santana's.  More than 
half of Tito's income came from Santana royalties.

Spanish:  

Oye como va mi ritmo
Bueno pa' gozar mulata

English:  
Listen how my rhythm goes
Good for enjoying the black girl



h = hammer on    p = pull off
b = bend         r = release bend
\ = slide        ~ = let ring

I don't see too many Santana tabs so this should help.
I would love to hear any corrections, suggestions, or praises.
