Ready To Get Your Groove On?

“Corazón Espinado” was written by Santana and Fher Olvera and included in his 1999 album, “Supernatural.” It was such a huge success that it won two Latin Grammy Awards: “Record of the Year” and “Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group.”

Starting off with a tradtional “montuno” on the piano (an arpeggiated, syncopated chordal pattern), Corazon Espinado maintains the same progression throughout all the verses and choruses: i – iv – V – iv, modulating only once, in the bridge.

This classic Latin song has been covered by other musicians and also became a hit in Spanish-speaking countries:

  • Number 22 in the US Billboard Latin Pop Airplay
  • Number 39 in the Swiss Singles Chart
  • Number 89 in the Dutch Singles Chart
  • Number 14 in the Italian Singles Chart

Carlos floats over the top with riffs that mix the Aeolian mode (natural minor) and Harmonic minor (raised 7th tone).
