Topsy is a tricky tune for some reason. I think it's because it's apparently quite simple. That "hit the road jack" progression lends itself well to pentatonic playing but it's difficult to get something more interesting going over it. Thanks for making me learn how to play the head properly!

Thanks Richard, I've just got a new recording set up so I think that's helping!

Why are you suddenly being nice to me?

Are you feeling guilty because I depped out that nicely paying gig to you and all you did was take the piss out of me? You should do :evil:

I was particularly fascinated by the fact that you did not open your eyes and wake up until the end of the first chorus.
