My dog was named Riff Raff. Rocky Horror was a big part of my growing up and out!

>> Rough description:
>> there are 2 sections - one is the bass coming in with a big fat tonic, and then the higher instruments responding with a long chord, one of 3 notes
>> In each case, those 3 notes are the first 3 notes of the blues scale... just pick one :-D
>> (So for trumpets, it's one of C, Eb, or F for the first, and Eb, F#, Ab for the second )
>> 
>> Second section is repeated eight notes. Basses pound the tonic the whole way, higher instruments swtich notes about an octave at a time - for trumpets, C, Eb, Bb, F# - and then an Eb for the very last note before it loops back
>> 
>> Kind of like meanest pumpkin, this thing will work well if we really go crazy slowing and speeding up - couldn't quite get it to work in musescore and for the mp3 but I can play it for you on piano :-D
