what follows is my transcription of the best jazz song by the best jazz guitar player in history.

I intentionally did not include rhythm because this song should be played the way you think it sounds 
best.  What i am tabbing out is the basic melody and chords.  Do not necessarly take it literally. have fun

alright... thats not quite how it ends, and i did skip
about half the song... but you get the idea.  once you
really get comfterable playing it, it sounds pretty
good. give it a chance... get it smooth and together.
want some more jazz guitar, check out my tab of charlie
parker's ornithology.

ahve fun
