Sungha Jung Plays “Take Five”
 
ELIXIR Strings artist Sungha Jung plays a fingerstyle guitar arrangement of Dave Brubeck's “Take Five.”
September 22, 2016

Elixir® Strings artist Sungha Jung started playing guitar at 10 years old in his hometown of Cheongju, Korea, learning from his guitar heroes through their videos on the internet. He launched his own YouTube channel in 2006, and now has over one billion views of his fingerstyle guitar arrangements and compositions.

In this video, Sungha plays his arrangement of the Paul Desmond composition “Take Five,” which was recorded by the Dave Brubeck Quartet on their album Time Out, released in 1959. The song was the first jazz single to sell a million copies and is still among the biggest jazz hits ever.

Sungha’s arrangement of “Take Five” is included on his recently released album of solo guitar music called L’Atelier, and he’ll be touring in the United States in late 2016.
