    Quick dumb question- was watching a Damian Erskine vid and he played a bit of a line that I know but can't remember what song it comes from and it's bugging me. The link starts at the right point.

    Nah- he plays it pretty point on to what it sounds like. For some reason I was thinking Stevie Wonder but couldn't find one that matched so I'm probably wrong :)

    Lots of things. The first one I thought of was "Footprints" by Wayne Shorter.

    Not that one- the line has the regular half step up/down movement between phrases.

    Stevie Wonder's "I Can't Help It"?

    From MJ's Off The Wall album...
