That's lovely, Jimmy. I really enjoyed that.

I've been a fan of Santana since I saw the film of Michael Shrieve's performance on "Soul Sacrifice" at Woodstock. Thanks for sharing.

Terrific Jimmy!
I always loved that song and expected to see and electric in your hands when I opened the link. I never imagined that song on an acoustic but you nailed it.
