Chorus play Rhy Fig 1 twice (2nd time ascend a whole step every 16 notes

so you're playing Eb, F, G Ab as octave, then the Gb and Fb chords before

going to verse)

Verse 2 (Dancin' in your head...)

This is virtually the same as verse 1 except for right after Gary sings

"Hip today..." where Nuno plays a 32nd note line...
