swing eighths
a classic piano-bass duo, run out and get it!
 
maybe there's something perverted about putting string bass
music into tab, but hey, here it is.
This version is based on those published in Todd Coolman's
_The Bass Tradition_ and Ken Rattenbury's _Duke Ellington:
Jazz Composer_
hope ya like it.
Jeff Schwartz
 
oh, everything from XIII on is played arco (with the bow)
interpret as you will.
ciao.

nice, considering that ultimate guitar has a paper thin selection of jazz tabs, its nice to see some jazz.
