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...
