Any true fan of the Dan know that Donald Fagen's wizardry on the keys is as unique as his voice, and just as eccentric. This book in the Just the Riffs series culls more than 65 great riffs - from Can't Buy a Thrill through Two Against Nature - and transcribes them note-for-note, just as Fagen played them. Includes riffs from: Babylon Sisters * Black Cow * The Boston Rag * Cousin Dupree * Deacon Blues * Do It Again * Gaucho * Green Earrings * Hey Nineteen * Josie * Kid Charlemagne * Reeling in the Years * Rikki Don't Lose That Number * Time Out of Mind * and more.
