This is a cameo with Carlos Santana. This song is hard to depict where the chorus and 
bridge are. Dave layers the guitar vet well. I have the basic parts and patterns for 
the song. I hope you like it. This is also played on a classical guitar (nylon 
strings). It sounds very nice.

Intro let the strummed chords ring --------------------------------------------------7--7--5----------------------|-8---7--8--10---8--7h8p7-------7--8--7---5-----------------8--9----------------|-9-------------------------7------------------5-----------------9h11p9--4---4--|-9-------------------------7------------------5-------------------------4---4--|-7-------------------------5------------------3-------------------------2---2--|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Verse This is the basic pattern. I think Dave has some strange strumming pattern in the mix too. It would sound better with a band backing you up too.This is played pretty fast too.-------7----------|--------7--------|--------------7-----------|----8-----8-------|-----8-----8-----|-----------8-----8--------|-9-----------8h9p8|--9-----------9--|--------9-----------9/11--|------------------|-----------------|-----9--------------------|------------------|-----------------|--7-----------------------|------------------|-----------------|--------------------------|

Chorus This is just the verse picking patter with the below chords and muting being played in rapid flamenco strum style."Mother Father please explain to me . . . "-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|-x--x--x--x--x--x---9--9--9---x--x--x--x--x--x---9--9--9---x--x--x--x--x--x--|-x--x--x--x--x--x---9--9--9---x--x--x--x--x--x---9--9--9---x--x--x--x--x--x--|-x--x--x--x--x--x---7--7--7---x--x--x--x--x--x---7--7--7---x--x--x--x--x--x--|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Bridge "What's all this talk about?" This is played pretty darn fast too. You can use the chords below instead of the picking. It sounds better when playing solo.------------------------------------------------------------------|-8-------7-------8-------7-------8-------7-------8-------7--------|----9-------9-------9-------9-------9-------9-------9-------9-----|-------9-------9-------9-------9-------9-------9-------9-------9--|------------------------------------------------------------------|------------------------------------------------------------------|
Alternate Strumming pattern for the bridge (best played at the end) -------------------------------|---------------------------------|-------------------------------|---------------------------------|-12---11---9------12---11---9--|--12---10---9-------12---11---9--|-------------------------------|---------------------------------|-10----9---7------10----9---7--|--10----9---7-------10----9---7--|-------------------------------|---------------------------------|
Then goes back to the verse Then play the chorus Then the bridge ("coming at you . . . we're taking the water")
