Artist:  Citizen Cope feat. Santana
Song:    Sideways


Tabbed by: R. P. Benik III


I've decide to do a tab myself since the one that was currently on ultimate-guitar.com
was way off, especially on the bends.  where i put in bends, you will have to listen and
judge yourself how much to bend.  sometimes santana bends just barely, half step, whole
step and sometime even one and a half.  so just listen and get into the grove.

I'm confused. I thought Santana was featured in "Son's Gonnna Rise". I think you may be thinking of the wrong song, Meshell Ndegeocello is the other player in this song.
