Lost in a whirlpool

Lost in a whirlpool, opening. Transcription: Kasper Sloots (KS). Update 2005, included in the 3rd printed edition from 2007.
Note: there a faint bass E in bars 1-4. When Beefheart starts singing, the chord scheme opens more clearly with the Em chord.

It may be self-evident from the title of this study that the author of the music itself represented in the note examples in this study is Frank Zappa, of which the copyright since his death has gone over to the Zappa Family Trust.
