Chorus play Rhy Fig 1 twice  (2nd time ascend a whole step every 16 notes 
 so you're playing Eb, F, G Ab as octave, then the Gb and Fb chords before 
 going to verse) 
 
Verse 2  (Dancin' in your head...) 
This is virtually the same as verse 1 except for right after Gary sings  
"Hip today..." where Nuno plays a 32nd note line...
