    JCL50 I like your old school approach very much!The slight gnarly tone with the progressive build up were very nice!

    @Mellencaster Nice feeling and tone. Funny stereo "2 guitars" effect

    @NWinther a personal version, nice tone and playing. I prefer your playing on the cleaner parts.

    @udoering Very good sounding, great note choice

    Alan L Cole Oh my! I didn't mean to invoke some personal sorrow memories with this track but you sure did translated it to your playing very well. Very dynamically played quite nicely Alan and a sweet version at that too!

    Thank you Mike but no sorrow, but rather Peter Green's blues guitar rawness that touched and influenced me deeply in my youth.

    Awesome Mike! Love that tone and delay. Great delivery. Your version pays tribute to Carlos nicely while being your own with touches on some of Mr. Green's blues flavor for me. Nice!

    Your cool style and attack very evident here Niels - you made it your own in the shadow of Mr. Santa while keeping it's blues base fresh. Nice II.

    You gotta love guitarist and Ullrich's spirit. Way to play through your challenges Ullrich. Beautiful riffin', awesome tone and cool nods to Carlos. Well done and Nice III!

    Old skool and smookin! Great nods to Carlos while keeping it your own and awesome guitar tone. This is one of my favorites from you JCL50. I think you tore it up! Nice IV!

    Your guitar sound is quite near to C.S.; chosen notes also. Love that run just before 1:00; but it´s good playing throughout!

    I have to admit that often I am an ignorant man. Of course, I have heard the name Peter Green and have a notion who he is, I even have a CD (Splinter Group), but in the end I don´t know him as a guitarist. So I can´t judge if you played like him; but I can say that you sound different from the other tracks, and I like this one, especially the "eruptive" licks!

    I watched a few videos of Peter Green and Santana version . I was unaware of the clash between the two version with the listeners . Peter does capture the raw blues essence in his version with soul. One thing I'm sure of is that his influence is deep rooted in your playing style.

    Ullrich I'm sorry to hear of the health issues you are experiencing at the moment. I truly wish you a full recovery my friend. Pay heed to the doctors advice.

    Peter Green wrote "Black Magic Woman" Mike and was the founder of Fleetwood Mac, which started out as a blues band. Under Peter Green, Fleetwood Mac outsold the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined. He also wrote the beautiful "Albatros". Although suffering from drug and mental health issue, Peter Green is considered to have been one of the greatest blues guitarist ever, and is still alive today.

    It's an amazing story. I love Santana and his version of "Black Magic Woman". There is no clash for me, just a recognition of and an homage to two great guitarist and their place in music history. It was so cool that you provided the opportunity to relive some of this with the backer you provided Mike! Thank you...ALC

    I'm aware of Peter Green musical background and the original author to Black Magic Woman but I never'd dwell down that rabbit hole about each other version before until now , I'm glad I did.

    I never try to copy another guitarist Ullrich but the influences do seep in. I responded to Mike's comments, not having seen yours first. Peter Green's is an important and often overlooked if not know story. I hope you are well Ullrich and wish you a full recovery.

    Alan, I wouldn´t have thought that you try to copy another guitarist; as long as you are around here, you play your own style. But you sound a little different on this track (just a feeling, not verified by targeted comparisons), and now that I heard the Peter-Green-version I would say, yes, you sound a little more like him than you usually do (those eruptive sequences for example and more breaks in your playing). Like said before, just an impression.

    You are always astute Ullrich. One reason I don't try to copy other guitarist is because I can't and I have always strived to develop my own voice, which I feel is very important. I did give Peter's version a quick listen to set the vibe of my attempt. I don't mind borrowing pieces from others though. A little Jimi, Peter, Carlos, SRV, Bloomfield on and on :cool: - stir it up and try to make something of my own.
