    Great idea for the blog! Can you maybe give us a little more time to work on coming up with answers in the future? This one had me stumped because I couldn't come up with something that gets back to the I chord before repeating the pattern. I would, for this reason, not count Crocodile Rock. Ziggy qualifies and I wish I had thought of that one.Thanks, Jim. You just keep coming up with cool ideas!

  2. Jim D'Ville says:

    Good advice Chris. Next time I'll wait a week before giving the answer.

    I'm not surprised that Tom picked out the tune so quickly. He's a whiz at "hearing" songs–and a true joy to jam with. Add in his great voice, his "you can do it" encouragement and his smile and Tom's one of the funnest guys to have in a jam session (even though he doesn't like Hawaiian music all that much!).
