For school, I need to do an essay sort of thing on a relatively well-known electric guitar player who was born in a spanish-speaking country. I don't know any, could somebody please name one or something? Thanks :)

One of the best guitarists out there.

esteban is a white guy from Jersey (or PA, depending on who you listen too).

i cant think of any hispanic electric players, lots of flamenco and classical players though.
