Hi Duke,

Here's a take of 4 Bills. I transcribed your solo from the CD and also what I think is the solo by Sue Foley and then did a play though with the CD track. I then did some extra fills on the outro. What a great tune and I learned a lot from the lesson and then transcribing the solos. If you ever get the backing track finished I'd love to have a go at coming up with something for it. Thanks for the lesson and any feedback.
