That's my interpretation...at least as close as I could write on paper. I tried to get as close note per note on the solo as I could but since I have the feeling that Mr. Hammon doesn't play these exact notes every time, improvisation on the B pentatonic is probably fine. Feel free to e-mail me for comment, corrections, etc. Pancreas pancreas@vt.edu
