EndNotes. 1. This track amongst others, bears the hallmarks of Dave Hildago's mature Tex- Mex sensibilities. 2. There are other ways of simplifying this arrangement, just by shifting a note or two. It's interesting how a range of tonal possibilities manifest from a small change of chord structures.
