    Just what in the world is Chuck Rainey doing on the Bm7 E7 Am7 D7 turnaround? I'm talking about the first chorus in the song, but also the outro chorus where he just goes nuts. He seems to go higher on the neck, but I don't think he's slapping octaves.

    Anybody know where I can get/buy an accurate transcription of this song.

    I use to play that one note for note. If you can't find it I'll reaquaint myself with the tune and tab it out for you :)

    Wasn't this recently transcribed in Bass Player? A few months ago, I think...?

    I checked out the power tabs version and it seems to me to be all but perfect except for the part I'm talking about. Still an excellent transcription.

    Leanne, Im pretty sure that was "Kid Charlemagne" that was recently transcribed in BP which is of course yet another Steely Dan/Chuck Rainey gem.
    As far as the chorus goes, I checked out the tabs on basstabarchive as my band (a bass/drums/keys trio) is attempting it (trio covering SD songs=no small feat) and they give a decent transcription. Im still trying to REALLY nail the chorus.
    Im sure you'll agree the notes arent the hard part but the timing and technique is EVERYTHING.
    If you havent seen the Tabs on BTA heres the link http://www.basstabarchive.com/cgi-bin/search.cgi?search=/steely_dan/&hits=10
    Good luck!
