Samba Pa Ti Tab

To continue with my ever ongoing Santana kick, here is my latest tab. Samba Pa Ti is from the Abraxas album and is one of the most beautiful instrumentals I have heard. I tabbed all of the main melody parts but left the solo at the end alone (no point doing that as Santana is the only one who could ever do his own solo justice). It’s a pretty straightforward song, the only things to watch for are the double bends which might take some finagling. You can always play just the melody note, but if you can do the double stops, more power to you as they sound awesome. Brittni Paiva also covers this song, but I haven’t heard her version so I can’t tell you how similar they are.

    How can I play this song on my high G tenor?

    Thanks I’ve successfully transposed it into the key of C and it sounds pretty good.

      Great! It’s very freeing once you know how to transpose.
