I’m Going To Speke, X:2

Whistle friendly setting.

A few other variations which work:
- "~A3 ~B3" in the fourth bar of the A Part
- "AEA D2X", "AED D2X", or "AEF D2X" in the eighth/sixteenth bar of the A Part (where X = A or c)
- B rolls, or, "BAB", in place of "BdB" in the second/sixth bars of the A Part.

Checked The New Fox Band’s recording of it as well, they play pretty close to X1 for the most part.
