    When I first saw him play back in the 70`s, I was in shock from what I saw & heard, He has changed my life around as I was headed for disaster, I`m Santana all the way to my soul, I even met Him once ....what a true human, I listen to alot of music as there is alot of talent out there but I`m so glad this band is part of me always.......SANTANA FOREVER !!!

    Carlos plays, and has always played, with Heart, Soul and Spirit. He is an absolute guitar genious and has the ability to blend his immeasurable talent with his immeasurable Heart, Soul, and Spirit. Keep on playing forever Carlos, and never change. You're the best that ever lived. A living legend. God bless Carlos.

    Although his jazzy style and samba licks are pretty snazzy, and his music is nothing short of fantastic, the guitar pieces that he plays aren't particularly groundbreaking or technically difficult, so as much as I like Santana, I can't really give him more than three stars.

    His tone is the same for the past 30yrs. Never have a real band. He's one without addition,change or dicontinuance. More of the same.

    Carlos and his bands brought latin-funk-jazz rock to the mainstream... I would say he is one of the most innovative guitarists of our time...I've followed him since the days of Evil Ways and BMW/Oye Como Va. I do agree that some of his recent grammy winning stuff is tame compared to the old stuff from the '70s...there is some excellent guitar work on Caravanserai (Song of the Wind) and Samba Pa Ti (check out new version) and Europa are classics. Also Toussaint L'Overture from Santana III has passionate, beautiful guitar lines (google the history; it's interested) There may be those technically better, but no one puts feeling and emotion and plays the shit out of the thing like him. His guitar lines searing over whirling keyboards (Rolie, Coster or Thompson) and perculating latin rhythms need to be included in a time capsule representing the sounds of our generations...

    As much as I enjoy music, I am certainly no expert. That being said Carlos Santana is pretty damned good. His unique style is instantly recognizable. He has had a stellar career.

    Carlos the most boring Santana. Played the same tone for the past 1000yrs.

    I've seen Santana twice.  The first time was at the the Texas Jam, an all day concert with lots of bands.  The second time was at an outdoor concert near Cleveland.   It was great, I was able to move to a different spot if I wanted to just get a better view of Carlos.   He's amazing to watch!

    Santana has been great for a long time.  "Black Magic Woman" is just one highlight among many.

    A highly expressive guitarist and a pioneer in introducing world music into the realm of rock and pop.  While his playing may be in a comfortably and somewhat limited groove, I still think he can make people move when he lets his guitar cry and sing.

    Its hilarious when kids come in here thinkin' they know something... where did the 'new' guys get their inspiration?? And when did SPEED become criteria for expert guitar playing? What planet are YOU from?? Sad!

    First off Carlos live is always ass kicking and all this nonsense about changing his style is just plain frigging stupid and shows that many rateit all reviewers know squat about guitar players.

    Haa Haa! Does not change his sound?   Why should he.   He has one of the most DISTINCTIVE  sounds in rock guitar.  Has Clapton changed his sound?  Eddie van halen? etc, etc. Eddie van halen is a gooood example-sounds the same.  What bothers people is that Carlos just became very popular in the last few years.  (well 2nd or 3rd time around)  In the years of mindless guitar playing 90's-2000's I'll take him  over the others.

    personaly i think he has changed his sound, i liked the old stuff but songs like smooth and just feel better have these weak little 15 second guitar solos, nothing like the old him.
