I think its a John Coltrane song; I always thought it would sound pretty fingerpicked...
Anyone care to try to tab?

Summertime (done by Coltrane and countless others) is from the opera Porgy and Bess, music by George Gershwin....there's got to be tabs out there already, I'd think(there are definitely books)...quick search found this one:

I always loved the old version by George Bensen...but yeah, nice tune for fingerstyle guitar.
