What a great version of this song - I originally wished the intro was easier, but once I got it, it worked quite well - sounds just like the piano intro. I have never seen a transcription of this song before, & this one is exceptionally good. Keep up the great work - 5-stars ***** Said it before, this guy submits great stuff.

This song is excellent, by Bonnie or Mr. Michael. I think you're transcribed itperfectly.
Thanks
