About the Intro en verse 1 I`m pretty sure I am right. Verse 2 contains maybe a litlle mistake. If you trace them (or other mistakes), please mail me and tell me how it you think it should be! My emailadress is utahjazz@planet.nl . I have not figured out how verse 3 is played on the Cd. I just came up with that part myself. (Always put a little bit of your own idear in a song!!) I think verse 4 is reasonable ok too.
