[ 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.

The chords (based on any lead sheet) are Bb7sus4 (where you put two variations) and then Bbm Eb7 (correct) Abmaj7 then G7#5
