[ BACK TO TOP FOR NEXT SOLOIST ]

[ Solo over Cm7  F7  vamp ]

[ Back to melody ]

[ End solo with G7sus4 accents ]

*ACCENTS: There are basically just the two G7sus4 accents, but some
 arrangements have used varying numbers of hits after the two main
 hits, changing every time the section comes around.
