Cripes Jeremy, ease up already. You weren't born reading music either.

 

I don't work with tab much but last week I used it to teach some chords to a 9-year old kid, who only spoke a little English. It's amazing what a picture can teach, and there's nothing to say that he won't learn to read later on.

 

Try this link:

oops - re-read the question and realized you didn't want Donna Lee, but wanted Spain. Best I can do is this:

Music Man, if he had asked for tab for Blink 182 or Linkin Park, I would have just ignored it, but Spain?

 

It's a serious jazz tune that every jazz bassist should learn at some point, either by ear or by reading it.

 

I'll repeat my point: jazz players do not use tab.

 

Yes, I draw pictures for my students of where their fingers should go to play various chords, like this:

After that, they play from chord names. And then we start working on reading.

Thanks

:eek:

 

You would be better off trying to find a real book, man. Seriously. Jazz standards don't exactly lend themselves to the whole TaB thing.

Ugh.

It would probably look something like this:

 

G------------------------------------------

D------------------------------------------

A------------------------------------------

E------------------------------------------

 

...and the person attempting to do the tab would be trying to work out what exactly a chord chart was in the first place. :D
