Yup, GAGEC.

Kind of sounds like Herb Ellis on guitar.

It's Howard Roberts. Nice!

She basically had the best on her records. I just looked at the first 5 or 6, and guitarists ran from Al Hendrickson to Al Viola and Barney Kessel, and Howard Roberts of course.

I really like this recording. I may have to buy some of her albums.

And get a time machine so I can chase her around. My goodness.

"Yup, GAGEC."

Really? Am I missing something?

I'm hearing E, F#, E, C#, A

Julie's husband (Bobby Troupe) is sorta famous in the music world. He wrote an obscure tune called Route 66. They were on a TV show together called Emergency.

I think Eric Clapton had the hots for her too, Aaron, because he quotes the melody in the solo portion of Sunshine Of Your Love with Cream.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Nice bit of trivia there Peegoo!
I remember that show. Didn't make the connection.

"Mick I think you are hearing it in A."

I clicked the YT link provided above. I'm still confused...

Must be the whole northern hemisphere/southern hemisphere thing again...

The original recording is in A, and the opening notes are, as you said, E F# E C# A.

I interpreted the OP's question to be "If this were transposed to the key of C, what would the notes be?"

And the answer is, move everything up a minor third to get G A G E C.

And in trivia news, I just realized that that's the same line as the intro to Roger Miller's "King of the Road." But that's in B flat.

Ahhhhh... light dawns on Marblehead!

Now I get it! And that makes perfect sense.
D'uh...
