Round Midnight by Monk Thelonious

Tabs

Round Midnight -  Thelonious Monk
         -----------------------------------------------


                  arranged by Howard Wright
                  [email protected]


I worked out these chords by listening to two versions of the song
I've got - one with Monk playing solo at the piano, and another with
him and drums, bass, horns etc.


The two versions aren't exactly the same - but I've tried to find
the common ground between them to get a 'basic' arrangement.

You can play around with the chords, jazzing them up a bit, but the ones
I'll give at the start are the 'basics'.

Within the versions I've got, there's a lot of variation in the chords.
Especially Monk's playing at the piano - he seems to love adding flat
5ths to every other chord !!!

In fact, if you want to increase the 'Monk factor', instead of playing
straight 7ths, play 7-5 chords instead.

E.g in the intro chords instead of : Am7-5  Chord diagramD7D7  Gm7-5  Chord diagramC7C7 etc

You could play : Am7-5  D7-5  Gm7-5  C7-5
