Blue Monk

If you have known me for any length of time, you have heard me play this arrangement of Blue Monk by Thelonious Monk. It has become a bit of a habitual thing that I do whenever I pick up a guitar.

I originally performed Blue Monk as a recital piece when I was at school for Jazz. My private guitar instructor wrote this arrangement. I love Jazz chord melody style guitar. One day I will get back to learning some other jazz standards.

But until then, for all of you that aren't already completely nauseated by my rendition of this tune: enjoy.
