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.
