Imagine playing this….

You won’t need a lot of imagination, just a little bit of practice to bring life to John Lennon’s “Imagine”. This version for guitar is by renowned guitar arranger and singer-songwriter Jack Johnson and is a great finger picking piece for students around grade 1 and 2.


Even if your not currently finger picking this piece is an excellent opportunity to broaden your knowledge of the skill. So grab your guitar, put on those super cool round glasses and follow in the footsteps of the great John Lennon.

This song was released in 1971 and; no I wasn’t teaching guitar then, as one student suggested, and have never owned a pair of round glasses, however the hair style is familiar.

The first video gives you an idea of the piece and the second is the Jack Johnson version.

If this piece takes your fancy please let me know next time we catch up.
