I can't figure out how to play that little riff he does after the B7 chord. I know it slides up to a B using A and Ab as grace notes, then it hits a D and an E and then it does sometihng I can't figure out. I've tried slowing down the song and I've listened to it over and over again. Does anyone know how to play the riff??

Note: I'm going to buy a Ray Charles Sheetmusic Book soon, so don't reply telling me to lol \:\)

Also, I've seen the one they teach you on MagRack but its wrong.. \:\(

Help meeee!

the riff is:
(ascending A, B flat, B natural, D, E, .....(desending) B flat, A, G, E, D, and back up a whole step to E again.


good luck with that champ it's a tricky lick to get under the fingers of even a genius!
