At the age of Ten, I heard Santana for the first time as he performed at Woodstock. That performance forever changed my life. At the age of 30, I met Carlos Santana with Paul Reed Smith (Carlos' guitar-builder) at the NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants trade show). Carlos gave me a small but memorable piece of advice." You must always follow your heart man, play what is inside your soul. Make it your own." I never forgot those words. I am humbled and blessed to be able to share my enthusiasm of this epic music catalog from one of the worlds greatest guitarists, Carlos Santana.
