Yeah! That guy can't play at all.    Schmoogsley here is REALLY onto something (or is it ON something?).  Or maybe just off his meds??

Get back on/off.  Cluelessness is not a good look.


Thank you Santana Brothers
for  Luz Amor Y Vida

this is 9 - OUTSTANDING  to me     TY RP

he is just so good...
Like a Big Mac, you always know what to expect, and one day maybe that damn pickle won't catch in my throat, but that diddly-diddly twiddly bit close to the end is as predictable as any X-Factor key change, and that chocolate sauce at the bottom (!) of the ice cream is still as sickening! I mean, Big Mac and ice cream are OK, if nothing else is open, but not exactly first-date fare.

So great to hear a wonderful Santa song that's not one of the 5 we always hear in mainstream radio.

Props, not on the making fun of a spelling mistake, but doing so with such a HI-larious GIF. Santa instead of Santana kind of reminds me of when all the Sunday evening news anchors had to report on Osama bin Laden's death, only to say over-and-over "Obama's been killed."  At least with Santa/Santana/Satan we get good GIFs out of it.

Long Live RP!

(...and that's 13 of my 8s in a row....)


It's amazing how well he plays with those size hands...........................................
Simon! Muy bien. Carlos con sus hermanos. Ok, well I heard a story once from a Mexican, you know, a person born in Mexico, that is a musician and  told me that when Carlos was in his family's band in Mexico with his brother George, that they were invited to come to L.A. to do a test track but George couldn't get a visa or something and opted not to come to L.A.. At the time, George was the leader of their band, not Carlos. Interesting story, that I believe to be true.

If that show doesn't move ya, you might be a corpse.

  Yeah, looks like a great show. Talented musicians, great energy, great jams, etc. Glad Santana is part of the eclectic mix here, but it's just not my cup of tea. No "hate" here though, just honest preference (whether uneducated or not).

First, I'm too lazy to scroll down to the bottom of the comment pile, and, second, I simply don't get all the hate for Carlos and everything Santana. "Light, Love, and Life." What's not to love? C'mon, people, give a little.

Wouldn't  it be great if a band playing punk, thrash metal or gangsta rap took over a supermarket for a few hours? I know what you mean about submissiveness and complacency: all you have to do is look at the prepared "foods" and frozen "meals." Are they really what people want, or is that consumers couldn't hit the "Stop" button on the elevator ride down to the lowest common denominator?

I don't know what to make of Santana. A few of his albums from the 70s were brilliant but seemed to have lost popularity until "Supernatural." Some guitarists you'd think were Gods have limitations. There's a video on YouTube about the behind-the-scenes making of U2's "When Love Comes to Town", which they wrote for B.B. King. BB confides at one point, "You guys are gonna have to do the chords. I'm horrible at chords."

Well, I guess ignorance is bliss. 

I believe all that you say is true for you, but for me music is all of those things (tone, style, rhythm, etc.) and SO MUCH MORE.  I guess, more specifically, Santana's music ultimately does not move or engage me emotionally enough.  So, for me, it's missing some sort of magic.  I'm fine with being in the minority on this and will now return to my bliss.

And, sadly, my young friend, I believe you are the poorer for it. Differentiating tone, style, rhythm, technique, equipment, and so much more is one among many of the great discoveries awaiting you if you care to look for them--if you care to look past the superficialities of "this guy always sounds the same..." This is not a dis or a criticism. However, it is a challenge.

I can't believe you put St Pete at 7.  That is a tough list to make., how did you leave out Clapton?
 
Completely subjective, of course. I've just never been a big Clapton fan. Compared to the others on the list, I find him a bit, dare I say, bland.

I've always loved Carlos' playing as well; so pure, so instantly recognizable.
I squeezed him in at # 6:

1) Jimi Hendrix
2) Jimmy Page
3) Jeff Beck
4) Duane Allman
5) David Gilmour
6) Carlos Santana
7) Pete Townshend
8) Eddie Van Halen

When it's all said and done, Carlos has to be listed in the top five of greatest R n R guitarists: Hendrix, Page, Clapton, SRV.
The guy never seems to get enough credit.

I couldn't agree more, and thanks for saying so. He is one of the bona fide heroes of music, truly and superbly gifted. Fabulous and uplifting melodies. 45 years and counting, making music for the world. 
This is one of my favorite Santana songs...

What a smokin' tune. Go Carlos...


 YES!  Exactly right!  So danceable and groovy...

Carlos just keeps on swingin' his axe.  Is it true he's the all-time inspiration for air guitar players everywhere?
