Sungha Jung

Sungha Jung was born in 1996. He is a fingerstyle guitarist from South Korea. He has achieved online success through his youtube channel with over 4 million subscribers. Jung started learning how to play the guitar at the age of 10. His father taught him the basics such as chords shapes. He then taught himself by watching videos online and figuring out how to reproduce them by ear. Most of the time, Jung doesn't use sheet music. The videos he has put up on his channel are generally acoustic arrangements of covers and original material. He gained a massive following after posting “(Movie Theme) Pirates Of The Caribbean - Sungha Jung” in 2008. The video went viral and has now enjoyed over 50 million views. So far, Jung has released an album every year since 2010. His first album was called “Perfect Blue”, his second album was called “Irony”, his third album was named “Paint It Acoustic”, his fourth album was entitled “Monologue”. These albums hold an increasing amount of originals. However, it wasn't until his fifth album that the entirety of his record was made of original compositions. The album was entitled “Monologue”. He then went on to release two more albums (“Two of Me” in 2015 and “L’atelier” in 2016). Both of which hold mostly originals and a few original arrangements. Although acoustic guitar is Jung's main instrument, he also plays the twelve-strings guitar, the electric guitar, the guitalele, the ukulele, the harp and the piano. Jung produced the albums himself in Germany where he also recorded them.
