Lesson notes

So this is a special guest acoustic lesson from MattB. If you are yet to watch MattB's interview series please go and check that out. For those of you yet to realize, Matt has been blind from 2 years old on, and yet has become a great guitar teacher, player, and artist. In 2005, Jack Johnson released the album In Between Dreams, a disc that would include a number of hits that cemented Johnson as an acoustic rock favorite. Hawaiian-born and California-educated, Johnson's voice and style echoes Nick Drake of the 1960's with a slightly tropical flare. This song showcases the possibilities available with four chords for a verse and a chorus, spices things up with a bluesy bridge, and, best of all, starts things off with a sweet and groovy acoustic guitar lead.
