I don't know much Santana songs, just the more "mainstream" singles.
But i was thinking about learning to play some of his songs, because i never tried to play none!
So, i need advice on where to start playing Santana...
What songs are the easiest? What songs would you recommend to a begginer (still-a-few-steps-away-from-intermediate) guitar player?

(BTW, in the "Solos for begginers" and "Songs for begginers" threads only "Maria Maria" is suggested.)

Thank you for your help!


EDIT: ShreddyVanhalen, thank you for your advice! No, i don't know how to play "Smooth". I know the song, but never tried to play it. I'm definitely going to try that one!
Also, i'd like to thank Kierans239 for his advice.

Any more suggestions? Please?

I've been wondering the same thing, except with slightly more intermediate songs.
I know Smooth is a good song but that might be too easy for you, and its also mainstream so you probably know it.

I think that black magic woman isn't that hard a song but it might take a while for you to get the whole song it took me roughly a month to learn it (god i hate tabs for solos ) try that one... and if its to hard try and find someone that knows it and just learn it from them

Try Corazon Espinado, Maria Maria, Put Your Lights On and De La Yaleo.
Let's go back to five billion bpm and see how good i am.
