    This is a popular Joe Sample tune, recorded with Jay Anderson on upright bass. I'm trying to pick my way through it on electric.

    Not that I want to imitate JA, but he has quiet a romp through the tune and it sounds like fun.

    I'm also working on Black & White. Another song from the same CD.

    I believe they're both pentatonics, fairly simple in outline but my ear's aren't good enough to get it. I haven't been able to find any sheet music. Does anyone have any tips on playing either of these?
