What Are We Learning To Play?
Check out this video of me playing the song so you can get to grips with what you are going to learn.
Along with the thumb, we will be using the first and middle fingers to pluck the other notes. Let’s assign a finger to each string. The thumb will be playing everything on the G and C. Then the first and middle will be playing the E and A.
The next section is the same as the first one. For the final part, you need to place your first finger across the bottom 3 strings on the 5th fret. Then use your middle finger on the 6th fret of the C string. The chord is still barring the 5th fret. Drop your middle finger to the 6th fret of the A and your ring finger on the 7th of the C.
This isn’t the first time I have arranged Jack Johnson on the ukulele. A few years ago I took a trip to New Zealand and filmed a sunset video on the beach. I arranged his In Between Dreams album and you check that out below.
