I love this song. Saw Jonathan Davis live at Gruenspan, Hamburg, in June 2018. Had to wait until the end of the concert for an encore „What it is“. So when my guitar teacher suggested we arrange one of my favorite songs for fingerstyle solo guitar, this was my first choice.

Who is Jonathan Davis? And what is „What it is“?
In case you need some background information on Jonathan Davis, this is what Wikipedia says: „Jonathan Howsmon Davis (born January 18, 1971), also known as JD, JDevil, or J Devil, is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. He is best known as the lead vocalist and frontman of nu metal band Korn, who are considered the pioneering act of the nu metal genre. Davis‘ distinctive personality and Korn’s music influenced a generation of musicians and performers who have come after them.“
But Jonathan Davis also started a solo career in 2007, which is how I got to love his music. See Wikipedia: „In January 2018, Davis released his first solo single, „What It Is“. On January 26, 2018, he released the music video for „What It Is“. While the single was included on the movie’s soundtrack for American Satan.
On May 25, 2018, he released his debut solo album, Black Labyrinth on Sumerian Records. The beginning of the writing process of Black Labyrinth—whose thematic focuses on „religion, consumerism and apathy“—was initiated on the road, back in 2007. Davis contributed mainly to the sound of the album, playing guitar, keys, and „anything else he could get his hands on to the record“.“
