Lesson notes

You And Your Heart is another ‘breezy, rhythm guitar-driven hit’ by Hawaiian singer-songwriter Jack Johnson, and is the lead single from his 2010 studio album ‘To The Sea’.

The lesson takes a look at how Jack performs it acoustically in the key of C, but also addresses the album version which is in the key of D. The first one is a little laid back, while the original recording swings a bit more.

It also covers the progression and the main riffs which are very fun to play. It requires focussed strumming at the speed of 16th’s, while making sure that the other strings are dead by muting them with the left hand.

The strumming patterns for those riffs are carried over to the rest of the song, but should be done full on, driving and consistent.
