I am learning the bass part for a swing piece called 'I Got Rhythm' but I want to convert it to tab so I can read it easier. I understand most of it, but what does a refrain mean when it is over a repeat symbol? Also, does 'brightly' mean anything musically or is it just a random descriptive word above the opening bar? Please help! Thankyou!
