Wes Montgomery – While We Are Young tab

Wes Montgomery,While We're Young.
 Tabbed by greg buchak,gbuchak@excite.com.
  
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. if you mastered this and want more email me, or if you want some more jazz guitar, check out my tab of charlie parker's ornithology. ahve fun :: Ultimate Guitar Archive :: http://www.ultimate-guitar.com
