                Song title:BODY SURFING
Music/ Lyrics: Carlos Santana & Alexander J. Ligertwood

  This is a very rhythmic song, and it's very easy to play it, because there are
no complicated solos or riffs. So, the only you have to do is listen to the song
before trying to play it.

*INTRO PART:

   Play this four times...
 E----0----0----0----0----0----0----0----0--------|
 B-----1----1----1----1----0----0----0----0-------|
 G------2----2----2----2----2----2----2----2------|
 D-3-----3----3----3----3----3----3----3----3-----|
 A------------------------------------------------|
 E------------------------------------------------|

   ....and then, the intro part finishes with:

 E-0----0----0----0----0-----0--------------------|
 B--0----0----0----0----0----3--------------------|
 G---0----0----0----0----0---4--------------------|
 D---------------------------5--------------------|
 A---------------------------5--------------------|
 E------------------------------------------------|


*FIRST VERSE:

                           GMaj   Am        Am
 E-------------------------0--0--0--0---0---5----------|
 B--------------5---5------3--3--1--1---0---5----------|
 G---------------5---5-----4--4--2--2---0---5----------|
 D----------------7---7----5--5--3--3---0---7----------|
 A-------------------------5--5--3--3---0---7----------|
 E--------------------------------------0---5----------|
  "Took a walk,              ...down by the o--

 E------------0--0--0--0---0---5----------|
 B-5---5------3--3--5--5---0---5----------|
 G--5---5-----4--4--5--5---0---5----------|
 D---7---7----5--5--7--7---0---7----------|
 A------------5--5--7--7---0---7----------|
 E-------------------------0---5----------|
  --cean..."       "I...

 E------------0--0--0--0---0---5----------|
 B-5---5------3--3--1--1---0---5----------|
 G--5---5-----4--4--2--2---0---5----------|
 D---7---7----5--5--3--3---0---7----------|
 A------------5--5--3--3---0---7----------|
 E-------------------------0---5----------|

 E------------0---------------------------|
 B-5---5------3---------------------------|
 G--5---5-----4---------------------------|
 D---7---7----5---------------------------|

 ...mind".

It's the same for the other two verses.

*CHORUS:

 E------------------------5--5--7--7--------|
 B------------------------5--5--8--8--------|
 G------------------------5--5--9--9--------|
 D---------------2--------7--7--9--9--------|
 A-----------0-3---3-0----7--7--7--7--------|
 E-0-3-0-3-0--------------5--5--7--7--------|
                      "...Big Kahuna..."

 E--------------7--7--5--5------------------|
 B--------------8--8--5--5------------------|
 G--------------9--9--5--5------------------|
 D-----2--------9--9--7--7------------------|
 A-0-3---3-0-0--7--7--7--7------------------|
 E--------------7--7--5--5------------------|
           "...tide was high..."

 E----------------5--5--7--7--5--5--7--7---0---0------------|
 B----------------5--5--8--8--5--5--8--8---0---1------------|
 G----------------5--5--9--9--5--5--9--9---0---2------------|
 D-------2--------7--7--9--9--7--7--9--9---0---2------------|
 A---0-3---3-0----7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7---0---0------------|
 E-0--------------5--5--7--7--5--5--7--7---0---0------------|
               "...I   begin body  surfing for my life."

 Then, play Intro, verse and chorus parts again. After chorus part this is next:

 E------------------------------------------------|
 B------------------------------------------------|
 G------------------------------------------------|
 D-----2--------2-----------2------0--------------|
 A-0-0------0-0-----------5------0----------------|
 E--------0-----------3-3------3------------------|(X2 times)

Then, the chords for the next part are:
      Am                GMaj
 E----5-----         -----3-----|
 B----5-----         -----3-----|
 G----5-----         -----4-----|
 D----7-----  and    -----5-----|
 A----7-----         -----5-----|
 E----5-----         -----3-----|

So, you have to listen to the song to learn the rythm. It's not difficult.

   This riff is heard during this part:
 E------------------------------------------------|
 B------------------------------------------------|
 G------------------------------------------------|
 D------------------------------------------------|
 A------------------------------------------------|
 E-5-5-5-5-----5-5-5-5----3-3-3-3-----3-3-3-3-----|

Finally, this song finishes with the chorus part again.
So, that's it!

As you can see, it's very easy to play this song, but if you have any question or
 Cheers.
