I need to play a jazz piece for music and I don't want to sing because I get better marks when I just play guitar. So does anyone know a song where the guitar plays the melody. I was going to do Joyspring by Joe Pass but the tab isn't accurate so I want to try and find a new one.

If you know a song which has a good tab please tell, or even if its just a good song with the guitar playing the melody. Thanks

You can play Take 5 on the guitar. Blue Monk also sounds nice through the guitar.

Wes Montgomery did a cover of 'Round Midnight that is somewhat technical. Misty and Satin Doll are also good choices.

Or you can just play Giant Steps.

Try girl from ipanema, fun song that isn't too difficult to play solo. Take Five by Dave Brubeck is also simple, recognizable and fun.
