    I sometimes like just finding out the key to a song and find an alternate melody to the song. I dunno, I don't play to much of other peoples stuff in my free time because my band "job" is covers. So when I'm not concerning myself with my "job" I'm writing my own stuff it seems.

    "Slippin N Slidin'" - is that from the live DVD or something? I've not heard it.

    BTW, Stillness In Time is one of my favourite Jamiroquai songs. Great tune.

    It's not from the DVD, but it's from a live boot that I got about 5 years ago.
