Well all right   Santana



                          "Well All Right"
                 Original Album "Inner Secrets" 1979
             Taken from Santana "The Ultimate Collection"
            Written by N.Petty,B.Holly,J.Allison,J.Maudlin  
                     Performed by Carlos Santana

Tabbed by Nick Wellings,   nickwellings@hotmail.com
Tabbed on 11.8.00

Note; I have tabbed what I think Santana has played as 
accurately as possible for reference. Sometimes its best, 
I think, not to try to reproduce exactly what you hear
or read,it can get way too complex.
Anyway, to the song.
Tech notes: Start off with a clean sound selector on middle 
position if its a stratocaster or imitation of one, 
then during the solos change the selector for emphasis,
if directed to, as Carlos often does. 

       h - hammer on
       p - pull off
       b - bend string up
       r - release bend
       / - slide up
        - slide down
       v - vibrato more v's=more vib
       t - right hand tap
       x - play 'note' with heavy damping

 Well All Right give up instead   
 Well All Right let the people say
