We present you with the list of the easiest Jack Johnson songs to learn. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it giving you some advice if you want to sing them. Jack Johnson was born and grew up in Hawaii, where he spent his youth surfing and playing guitar since he was 14, so that lead him to start a music career. He had launched his first album in 2001, the “Brushfire Fairytales,” which holds platinum certification for over 1 million sold copies. Until now he has released six more albums. Apart from these albums he has also written songs and soundtrack for several movies. Since he has studied film, he also had an appearance in several TV series and movies and had directed and written music for several documentary movies, some of them being The September Sessions and Thicker Than Water.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the easiest Jack Johnson songs to learn from their list.
The first one is It’s All Understood. This is the one song we have mentioned piano in the introductory part of our text. It is completely written for leading piano, but, of course, there are always possibilities of playing it on ukulele and guitar. But to play original, we have found piano sheets for those who are here because of the easiest Jack Johnson songs to learn on piano. And in the video below you will also see how to play this song on keyboard/piano. The second song is Taylor. Taylor comes from the 2002 album On and on and the extended music video is featured by Ben Stiller. This song is good for learning both on guitar and ukulele, and as some people would recommend, it would sound very good if you had a ukulele with a strong G, but on the video below you will see how to play Taylor on guitar. At last, but not least we are recommending you Upside Down. Upside Down is one of the most popular songs by Jack Johnson. It was written for the movie Curious George, and it is a single taken from the album Sing-A-Longs and Lullabies for the Film Curious George when it got the platinum certificate for being sold in over a million copies. Since it is so popular, there are numerous tutorials for how to play this song, so it was a tough choice which one to choose for our list. Anyway, apart from the YouTube, if you prefer tabs, you can pick some of the Ultimate Guitar tabs for example.
