Spanish Guitar, Eloquent Brother of Soul

wild notes to ride on the clouds
wild notes to ride on the clouds
sounds in the night
sounds in the night
your tune carries on the breezes
your tune carries on the breezes
they vibrate, your sounds, as the strings are strummed.
they vibrate, your sounds, as the strings are strummed.
precious gold of Spain, so adored
precious gold of Spain, so adored
a music with the emotions of a stormy night
a music with the emotions of a stormy night
like a voodoo cast spell
like a voodoo cast spell
Notes that tell of a lost love, sound into in the night
Notes that tell of a lost love, sound into in the night
music so sweet, and on the wings of eagles, to fly
music so sweet, and on the wings of eagles, to fly





The high throated pitches of the guitar rings,

To echo through the darkness of the night.

Speaks of a lost love, and in such a regret,

Its corded rhythms, all seem to take flight.






Deep throbbing notes, vibrate in their refrain,

Showing such emotion, of lost love and pain.

Pitter-patting of bongos, add to atmosphere

Give a rhythmic emotion, and all so sincere.






Sweet trumpeted music, now joins in the song,

Telling of sweet nectar, her dark hair, so long.

The patting of guitar's box, a welcomed addition,

gives an aged old relation, to a Spanish tradition.

Its twang-twanging, in sharp corded, cutting tones.

To sound out the heart felt feelings, as all belongs.

Spanish guitar, you're so eloquent and so unique,

Much is so reflective, of the Spanish soul, it speaks.






Whining strings to dance before the evening breeze,

Carried on the wind, and of all its listeners, to please.

Like a voodoo cast spell, you've got a hold on me,

That brown eyed beauty, her Spanish spirit, to flee.





Spanish guitarist, his fingers finding cords, so elegantly,

To strike emotions and so expressive, is done, eloquently

A stirring tale of lost lovers, of a their story, one so old,

Now the young man stands alone, as his sad story is told.

..one of my all time favorites here - probably because I love the sound of the Spanish guitar, yes, but also because you are such a magnificent writer who inspires the Epi-man everytime you compose.

This is also so darn romantic - I need to play some Andres Segovia now or Carlos Montoya or Paco de Lucia - well you get the idea - you just set my musical soul on fire. Ole!! sending you warm wishes from cold snowy lake erie canada 1:38am

and yes Santana (Carlos) has a sound and a style all of his own - as soon as you hear him you know who it is.
