Notes: Carlos Santana's guitar doesn't start right away, there are 3 guitars total
in this song, Guitar 1 is Santana (Lead Guitar Standard Tuning "E A D G B E") and
the other 2 are P.O.D. backup guitars, To distinguish lead from backup, the backup
(P.O.D. Guitars tuned down 1 whole step "D G C F A D") guitars are alot lower in
volume than the lead guitar by carlos, Santana's guitar is alot fuller sounding, 
while P.O.D.'s guitars are more high pitched.

If the text wraps around copy and paste it into Notepad to see it as it is meant to be seen
