Anyone else pissed that people assume you have to play like Jack Johnson to be any good. It pisses me off to no end cuz all Jack Johnson plays is chords, nothin else. But no because I can't play all the ****ed up chords that Jack johnson can I automatically suck at guitar, what the **** is that about? Honestly I'd prefer guitar players if judged at all, should be judged on the overall level of their playing, not just one aspect of their playing.

I like Jack Johnson. Cry more. If you want to play to impress people, learn SONGS that impress people. Impressing musicians and impressing normal people are two different things.
#3
Jack Johnson's chords are ****ed up?

And yeah, I like Jack Johnson too. Take it easy, hoss.

stop complaining, if you want people to think that you're good, then play good, even a person who isn't a musician knows when they see something they like, so thats why they like jack johnson. If you want people to react like they do when they see jack johnson, play some jack joshnson and stop complaining.

jack who?




are you better than jack johnson?

and if you do, you would be too good to rant about someone who's not better than you...

and if you don't, what's the problem, he has been playing way longer than you probably, he has worked his ass off to own you at guitar

But seriously, you shouldn't care about what people think. If it's obvious to you that you don't need to know jack johnson stuff to be good at guitar, then it doesn't matter what other people think.

Go Jack Johnson.
And he doesn't JUST play chords the whole time.....he just doesn't play lead.

lol wut?

Where did you come up with this? Who are these people who "assume" anyone has to play like anyone else to be good. Look kid, you don't seem too bright, but I'll give you some advice. If you try real hard, you just might be able to comprehend it:

If people try to feed you bullshit, don't swallow.

Now you're just talking stupid. Jack Johnson plays just fine. Don't try to compare yourself with him. He sells records. Whether or not you suck is on you. Not on how you compare to Jack Johnson, or anyone else.

It's not a competition, idiot. It's music. Play what you play, because that's what YOU want to do. The only way you're judged is by whether or not people want to listen to you. You DON'T have a choice about that. You don't get to decide whether they like you or not. Either you connect with the people listening or you don't.

Your "preference" about judging has been duly noted, wadded up, and thrown in the bin.

Dude, Jack Johnson is hella sweet and chill. His music is so much fun to play with.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.
#28
Yea, damn those people that say you're not as good as Jack because you don't have the skill to play what he does!

**** them!


Learn some Jack Johnson songs, it will make you a better guitarist, and when someone asks you to play them, then you can play those songs AND some other beastly songs

bigger repitiour = better guitar player
#29
Jack Johnson's is way better than you think. As well are the two guys that are his backup band. JJ's songs are good enough to stand alone, he strums his chords, and sings well inspired lyrics. His back-up lay a nice and complimentary foundation. Which, from my understanding, JJ lends quite a trusting amount of freedom. Only after(with some exception),does his supporting musicians do thier parts, does Jack do his signature fills.

lol, completely agreed

the ts seems like the kind of guys who sits and complains instead of sit and practice
#31
God stop your bitching. If you can't play jack johnson chords, you suck. How about you embrace the idea of gaining a fan by learning a song they like? I tried to learn every song any of my friends threw at me, and I'm a much better guitar player for it, even if I hated the song, I still learned it. Grow up and lets your balls drop. Play a chord or two.

I guarantee if you play some chick a Jack Johnson song, you have a better chance of getting laid than you did before. For sure you have a better chance than screaming the lyrics to an old disturbed sond done unplugged.

Apart from "Belle" I think you'll find most Jack Johnson's chords are pretty normal TS.
I play guitar. So I joined a club about it.
