    Gawd...that is some masterful blues playing by Mr.jones.I just sat down with it and can see it is basically beyond my immediate grasp and it's going to take a while to even approach is lines,But we all need benchmarks.anyone get a handle on this tune and have it near note for note?

    Don't bother learning it, I bet JPJ doesn't even know it. Its a bunch of improv. Great improv.

    It has been published a few times in Bass Player Magazine. Lots of transcriptions using tabs available on the net. It is totally improvised. Great solo/improv section. One of my all time favorites.

  6. It's not really all that tough...I can remember most of it, and I learned it pretty much note-for-note years and years ago. It is a masterpiece.
