    Nice stuff, DB. It's not a bad thing to get obsessed by a tune now and again :-)

    A while ago I made a transcription of a Joe Pass solo fingerstyle version of Joyspring, as I was fascinated to know how he made this into an effective solo guitar arrangement (I worked it out from that youtube video where he plays to some people in a guitar shop, plus bits from another version he recorded).

    It’s an absolute pig to play, I still can’t play it properly. Increased my respect for Joe no end. Especially as in the youtube video he starts talking while he plays it!

    It starts at about 1:30 here:

    If I had to make a list of happy Jazz songs, this one would be number one. It was well named.
