Outro Solo similar to 1st solo only more bluesy

Hope all Piano playing Norah fans like this. This song is NOwhere to be found tabbed or
on the internet.  I worked my bum off on it with the rythm & bass lines. I wanted a
piano song to sing to without the need of accompaniment.  I'm a fledgling player on both 
& guitar so this was time consuming.  Trying to line up things was difficult too.  If
have questions, contact me at my profile.  Peace.
