"Hocus Pocus" by Focus

Guitarist Jan Akkerman joined this Dutch band in '69 or '70 and recorded one of the strangest songs to ever hit the US pop charts.  This song peaked at #9 on the charts in '73.  Combined with demented yodeling by Thijs van Leer and Jan's killer assault on the fretboard, this has always been a favorite lick to play.  It first sounds like the lick just uses power chords, but upon closer examination, you'll notice the use of m7 and maj7 chords
