% This A has one less beat than as played by Jim Morrison; here are 24 beats.
% On the tape of George Peterson the A is played only once. Jim Morrison
% has embellished the tune so that it sounds good when played several times.
% By removing one beat from the JM rendition it becomes possible for the
% dancers to be on the same foot each time the tune starts over again.
