A new Fan Club trivia contest begins now! This time we will be choosing FIVE lucky winners who will each receive an autographed Shape Shifter lithograph.

Q: What guitarist does Carlos pay homage to on Shape Shifter, and whose music he brought to the fore in 1970 when he fused this Hungarian jazz guitarist and composer’s “Gypsy Queen” with Peter Green’s “Black Magic Woman” on Abraxas?

We will be accepting entries through our Contest page, accessible only to Supernatural subscribers, until June 30. Good luck!

This 19.5″ x 24.25″ lithograph is printed on acid-free paper and features the stunning art of renowned Native American artist Rance Hood. The text on the bottom reads:

“The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to earth. All things are connected like the blood that unites us all.

Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.”

— Chief Seattle

A big congratulation goes out to our latest contest winner, John M., who has just scored himself a DVD copy of Santana — Greatest Hits Live at Montreux 2011 for knowing that Carlos dedicated Shape Shifter to Native American Indians.

“I encourage any and all countries (that have not as yet done so) to acknowledge the first people of their land, and make this a collective global effort.” — Carlos Santana
