This is a tune called Picture This by Debbie Davies.  If you like Bonnie Rait's
voice and some good blues guitar, buy this woman's CD.  The CD is called
"Picture This" from Blind Pig records in San Francsico.  (If you can't find it
in the store, I purchased it from the CD connection on the net.)  She used to
be in a blues band with John Mayall's wife and then toured with Albert Collins
for three years.  Just recently she was spotlighted on the HOUSE OF BLUES with
Dan Akroyd.  (I know I'm probably destroying the spelling of theses people's names
but I think you get the point.)

I tried to put in all the dynamics where possible but you'll need to listen to
the song to get every bend and slide just right.  It's a really fun tune, so
have a good time.
