Transcribers ... need help with lick.

I've slowed this down with my Transcribe program but still cannot figure what is being played.

First half of lick in "B"
Second half of lick in "F#

Appreciate some other ideas on whats being played.

It’s a C&W Floyd Cramer sort of thing.

B chord.
Ignoring the straightforward LH and taking it as a slow 4/4 you’ve got in the RH (each line is 1/8 note duration):-

B (then always upwards)
C#, F#
C#, F#
C#, F# (now down to..)

..then repeat that bar replacing the first F#,D# interval with a 1/8 rest in the RH. LH plays the octave root there.

Same idea (just transpose) for the F# chord. There’s a little 1/16 note skip in that bar also.
