hey all, just wondering what scale santana uses to get that killer sound of his? Or is his style more technique oriented? thanks guys
His style is actually mostly his distinctive tone. I suppose he uses major of scales and legato techniques and a nice vibrato.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich,
Would you do it?

With all your power,
What would you do?
I don't think he uses major scales, it seems like a lot of dorian which is a minor scale.

Ummm, I know he uses a PRS custom model.

you can try setting your amp to bass: 4, mid: 9, treb: 9, gain: 7 or 8 to begin approaching his sound. this is the setting i use anyways. his emotion makes him special
