    I'm gonna be straight with you.

    There are three different parts.
    The A section. A repeating I that ends on the V.
    The B section. A V/IV/I. Werewolves of London. Little Miss Can't Be Wrong.
    The C section. A IV/I that resolve to the V.
    Then back to the A section and repeat.

    Listen to it again. Count the measures for each "part.

    Listen to Frank's version above. He counted it right. ;)

    Thanks Kevin. Very cool and diverse tracks by all so far - kudos! It's been a long day; time to kick back and listen to some music and snuggle with my new friend. Tomorrow's another day.

    Thank you Chris.

    I struggled with this for awhile tonight. I have another project in the works ;) but it was nice to take a break from that and try something a bit different. Once again, I cannot solo well, so that sucks, the rhythm playing is more of my speed. I took some big liberties with the I IV V chords and did a lot of suspended chords as I played. I apologize for the warts, clams, and farts. This is mine through and through.

    The type of Stonesy vibe I'd expect from you. BTW An A sus is still the I, D sus is still the IV etc. :)

    Man, I wish I had more time for these...they keep coming fast and furious. Maybe once my kids are on summer break and all of the concerts and award ceremonies are done!

    A great variety of takes so far!
