I’d want to drop that first lead-in down an octave ~ |: E |\

Another possibility, among several, would be to slide up from below ~ |: C |\

But that”d be a big and interesting 7th drop from the d2 to C going from the B to the A part…

Weird, the dates are all screwy tonight. It’s the 10th here, but the 11th in the comments, and the tune shows up as being delivered on the 7th… Curious… :-D

Past - Present - Future ~ all in one…
