I wish I could get the B-part of this tune. I can never remember it. It’s always this particular tune which gives me problems in a session and it happens every time. There seems to be nothing I can do about it. I’ve listened to recordings endlessly, I’ve tried sitting down with it and learning it off the dots (several times), I’ve tried picking it up on the fly, I’ve asked musos to play it back to me slowly after the set has finished… I’ve tried everything and still I can’t commit it to memory. I wouldn’t care but it’s not even technically difficult or anything. Maybe I just wasn’t meant to play this tune 🙁
