Lesson notes

The Kinks were a band with many sounds. Today we take a look at a song that many people don't even know was them but they can immediately identify the tune. Sunny Afternoon was written by Ray Davies and is a very quirky look at life with money. The chord progression is based on a descending bass line in a minor key and has a somewhat jazzy feel. It also seems a bit strange that a Brit would mention 'ice cold beer'. One of Neil's favorites so we had to do it!
