Carlos and Me
For April first, a favorite thread, edited for flow, from the old forum in early 2017:
I was in love with my new PRS. I still am but there is something wrong with it. I have been primarily working pentatonic scales and Steve's Speed and Agility course since I got it. I decided to try to play Europa by Santana and it can't play it!!!! Europa by Santana. Come on. Santana is known for PRS guitars. Any self-respecting PRS guitar should be able to play Europa! What should I do?
Maybe if you could get Santana to play the guitar than it would remember how to play.

Sounds just like the problems I am having with my Strat. It won't play a darn thing that is in my brain.
I have a better idea, just send me the PRS, I have 14 guitars but don't have a PRS, it would be most appreciated!
Thanks in advance,

Thanks guys -- you saved me. I was just about to buy a Clapton Custom Shop Strat. Now I am having second thoughts.

Ron, you could send this guy a note. You’ll probably have to get past some suits, or whatever they’re called in La La Land these days. Good luck.

Thanks, Diane. I will contact Mr. Santana. I'm sure he'll get right back to me.
Mr. Santana will pass the guitar to his tech who will declare it ready to play. I on the other hand will spend a great deal of time correcting its inability to play in your hands.
Pat, I know that. The guitar is on the way to you and I sent you a tracking # by PM. I only said to Diane that I contacted Mr. Santana to make her feel like I appreciated her comment. But Sssshhh! Don't tell her. I don't want her to know.
OK. I understand your wanting to make Diane feel appreciated. She is indeed a wonderful person. We should just continue to talk behind her back in private.
Sorry about the mixup with Ron's PRS. The problem was just the usual, operator error.
Good to see you on Tavis a while back. Anyway, have a safe trip down under this spring. Give my regards to Cindy. See you in Bethlehem in August.
