    Wow

    Thats great to know. Im gonna go out and find some of that stuff. You can tell that in boston some berklee guy transcribed and performed his line on "I Play Dirty" by Little Milton and presented the transcription and played it as part of a class.He might get a hoot out of that (might not?).
