Hi everybody !
Here's a latin minor blues.

RD BossaRockPerc^9
RT 914 Acoustic Bass
RT 1959 Piano
RT 582 Electric Guitar
RT 583 Solo Electric Guitar
RT 1722 Solo Electric Guitar
Percussion Loops Guiro
Hi-Q Midi Flute Sample

C'est un blues au goût latin,
le carrefour de deux chemins.
Il a un côté cubain,
un côté américain.
Ce mélange lui va si bien.
Les frontières n'empêchent en rien
de baigner dans les deux bains.
C'est un blues au goût latin.

Great job on this tune, Chris!

When you started singing in French, my cognitive dissonance kicked in! Until then I was thinking "Santana"

I love blues played in a minor key!

Thanks Greg !
The contrast between the guitars and the piano is the basis of this piece.

Thank Pat !
The reference to the excellent Carlos Santana is so natural when we speak of latin blues.
