Hey all,

I've been working on Santana's "Love of My Life", and have kinda flowing. Unfortunately, I've never actually heard the song, and only can find the tab for it. Just wondering if anyone can point me towards a power tab file or guitar pro file.

I've searched mstabs, tab universe, Ultimate guitar tab, olga, and guitartab.com, where I've found power tab and guitarpro files for a bunch of his stuff.

Thank,

1st

I hate playing songs I've never heard. Therefore, when a song is presented to me, I download the song (.mp3) and work on it from there. It's only a dollar a song. That way you can practice along with the song.

Maybe this short clip will get you started.

Thanks,

Unless you require to learn a song to play with other musicians, or unless it's a set piece exercise, why would anyone want to learn a song they don't know? With millions of songs out there surely there are more than enough you know and would love to play. I know my reason for learning a song is because I heard it and liked it.

45 years playing and still rubbish.

I know it's probably weird to learn a song I don't know at all. I like Santanas sound and style, so I was looking for sheet music for his stuff. I did find a bunch that I'm gonna learn. Because I'm a beginner, I just as intrested in doing things to build skills as well as learning songs.

A lot of stuff I want to learn is just impossible right now, so I take parts of songs and work on "bite size" pieces.
