Carlos Santana Teaches the Art and Soul of Guitar | Official Trailer | MasterClass


When you play music– [PLAYING GUITAR] –you’re bringing light
into the darkness. [DRUMMING] I want to teach
because I love watching humans unfold their wings. [MUSIC PLAYING] We’re here to get
people’s attention. I’m giving you reference
to an attitude. Some people will say,
what kind of pedal is that, or what
kind of strings, or what kind of guitar,
or what kind of amplifier? No, it was soul, heart,
mind, body, and your vitals– one note. And with that note,
people go, whoa! [PLAYING GUITAR] If you don’t stand like that, it
ain’t going to sound like that. Before you put your
fingers on the fret, visualize these strings from
your eyes to your heart. And then you play. [PLAYING GUITAR] Whew! Watch out, world! [MUSIC – SANTANA, “OYE COMO VA”] The real musicians
make the ugliest face to create the
most beautiful note. They’re leaving Earth,
and like, the gravity is pulling their
face like, raaggh. And if your face don’t show
that you’re making an effort, then you’re not going
to touch the listener. [MUSIC – SANTANA, “OYE COMO VA”] We tend to look for greatness
always in somebody else rather than yourself. Go inside and get your sound. You can only go into
the heart by you being vulnerable yourself. That’s a whole other
level of musicianship. [PLAYING GUITAR] Hoo! I’m Carlos Santana. This is my MasterClass.

  1. Hey so for all those wondering about the song that starts at 0:10 its called spitting cobra and you can find it at this site called alibi.

  2. Santana claims that the sound comes from your soul, yet exclusively uses a certain type of guitar, amp, pedals, and cables. Okay buddy. I don’t see you getting those sounds out of a Squier guitar and a Line 6 amp
