Might Be A Chart Somewhere Under Those Scales, But Who Cares Karmeleaux
Let me open by saying you're going to be playing a shuffle on the blue fret a lot. Most of the verse is based on that, occasionally on green.

So how does a song with something that sounds so repetitive get five-stars? I think we all know the answer to that: Sweet, beautiful, HO/PO scales. All manner of these guys are all over the place the verses (keeping it from getting noticably repetitive), and they're just so much fun.

Choruses lack the scales, but still move around a good bit and have single HO/POs. They're decent fun, but let's face it, we're all here for the scales.

And of course, if a song gets five-stars from me, chances are it's got a jam in there somewhere. The verse rhythm starts getting more and more complex with its movement and scales as the end of the song approaches, the last thirty-plus seconds are like ecstasy in game form.

Another Steely Dan bass that has its flaws, but there's way too much good in here for them to make a difference. Recommended for everyone.

The main riff has you going back and forth across the guitar neck for a bit, then leads into a trill. As far as trills go, though, it's pretty short and not awkwardly placed so this could be a good place to practice your trills. It also has a couple solos that are pretty good and some neat flourishes throughout.
