YouTube’s most popular fingerstyle guitarist just did a cover of ‘Home’ and it is beautiful

Sungha Jung is an 18-year-old fingerstyle guitarist. But unlike most teenage guitarists, Jung has over 3.1 million subscribers on YouTube and videos of him playing popular songs have close to 1 billion views collectively. For the layman, fingerstyle guitar is a technique of playing the guitar by plucking the strings directly with the fingertips, fingernails, or picks attached to fingers, as opposed to using a guitar pick. This style allows for the guitar to play the melody and harmony of a song, so it sounds as if the guitar is ‘singing’ the part of the vocals in songs. The South Korean Jung is prodigious at it. Not sure what this all means? Then check out Jung’s arrangement of one of our most popular National Day songs – Dick Lee’s Home. Here are a few of his most popular videos: I’m Yours – Jason Mraz Payphone – Maroon 5 Sweet Child O’Mine – Guns N’ Roses
