Pick up your guitar and learn a new Jack Johnson song – the most surefire way to lower your blood pressure and relax on such crazy days.
This is a tribute to one of my biggest musical heroes – and one of the most inspiring songwriters and acoustic players – Jack Johnson.
I spent about 70 hours working on this 6 minutes video, so if you enjoyed it – please pass it forward to another friend who also likes Jack Johnson!

RESOURCES that I have used for the fun facts:
I really like the guy, so over the past few years I have watched every single interview with him on YouTube, and read many articles.
Also, there’s a nice biography about him (“Natural Born Man: The Life of Jack Johnson” by Mark Shapiro) which I highly recommend if you want to learn more.
THAT’S IT, hope you had a great time!
