“Black Magic Woman” By Santana

Off of the early Santana album, Abraxas, Black Magic Woman has one of the more memorable guitar intros ever recorded. Santana’s use of slides is so simple, but makes for such a mellow and moody part that leads into the minor blues structure of the song. At the end it goes into a major jam called Gypsy Queen. It arranges for ‘ukulele nicely provided you can pull off some sort of spin on the big electric tone that Santana has.
