4/4, Key of F (usually) This is a cool piece about the music biz and FZ's impression of session players. This is a fun song to play so if you've never heard it dig up a copy of FZMMP, well worth it with some excellent, short Synclavier comps. Some of the chord in this one are questionable. Especially the C/F/Ami/Dmi. I played with this one a lot before I settled on those chords. Some other options include G/F/C/Dmi and C/Bb/Ami/G. The B/F#/C#/G... section is also very weird. These chords work with the melody but harmonically aren't the greatest in the song (unless you like that sorta thing :0) If you find alternates let me know.
