Description

Week 44 is "Better Things" written by Ray Davies and released by the Kinks in 1981. The Kinks were always getting airplay for Lola and Destroyer and such but if you ever listen to those albums you'll notice they are full of sweet tunes and melodies for miles. This is one that had a comforting message that always stuck with me. Another great one to check out is a song called Sleepwalker. Enjoy! James In an effort to study the songs of some of my favorite artists and to pick up a few new instruments along the way I'm challenging myself to learn, perform and upload a video of myself playing a new cover song each week for 2013.
