    I have been trying to hours to figure out the into on my bass. I cannot seem to recognize the notes and the intro isn't even all that fast. I am watching\listening to the '92 Tokyo blue note performace where he performed Humpty Dumpty with the akoustik band. I'd appreciate if anyone could show me the chords and the intro. I can't even sing. when I try and sing the intro I mix a note or two somewhere and it ends up leading everything after into the wrong direction.

    this is soo frustrating. This intro is not that difficult but I know I am playing it wrong because I am ending on the wrong note. I know what the right note is but cannot seem to interpret the notes in between that smoothly lead to the last note
    (maybe I need to go to bed, it is 1:10am...)

    you should probably try transcribing it once more, since that'll do much more for your playing than just reading it.

    still, here is something google spit out. i don't know how correct it is: http://danadler.com/jazztrans/humpty_head.html
