Black Magic Woman by Santana | solos
An electric guitar lesson on how to play the guitar solos to "Black Magic Women" by Santana from their 1970 album "Abraxas."
It was sung by Santana keyboardist Greg Rolie. An excellent musician that along with Neil Schon went on to form Journey after leaving Santana in 1973.
This is arguably Carlos Santana's most memorable and biggest hit.
The song was written by Fleetwood Mac's Peter Green but Carlos really put it on the map when he had a huge hit with it in 1970.
It goes into a song called Gypsy Queen which was written by Gábor Szabó, a jazz guiarist out of Budapest.
In this video I break down both the intro and middle solos.
This is a fantastic tune to work on bending , vibrato and playing with feel.
I hope that you get something from the video and that it helps you to play these iconic guitar solos. Cheers
