Here is his “Six-String Tree” (kinda like a family tree…but, not really…)

Carlos say:

“If you STOP and ask JIMI HENDRIX, ‘Who’s your favorite guitar player?’ he most certainly will declared MR. BUDDY GUY.

“If you ask BUDDY GUY same question he will tell you MR. MUDDY WATERS.

“If you ask MUDDY he will tell you …….. (because he’s Muddy Waters after all…)

“If you ask PETER GREEN he most probably will say B.B. KING.

“Ask Stevie Ray Vaughan and he will say ALBERT KING…(or so, it’s been rumored).

“That’s the question that was presented to brother ERIC CLAPTON and apparently he said PRINCE.

“They ask PRINCE and he said SANTANA.

“When they ask me (Carlos) I always say JOHN MCLAUGHLIN.

“When they ask JOHN he always says [trumpet player] MILES DAVIS and JOHN COLTRANE.

Ask all the incredible fast finger brothers and they say PAGANINI.

“So you see dear friends WE REALLY ARE ALL ONE.

“And we totally CELEBRATE everyone’s BLESSED GIFT.

“ENJOY and keep having fun LEARNING.”
