Tutorial: Make You Better

Weird, sussy chord time!

Here’s me, quarantined and bearded, sitting next to a copy of Claude Ponti’s My Valley, teaching you how to play “Make You Better” from What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World.

This tutorial, the first of a couple I’d posted over on my instagram account during the first lockdown in 2020, was inspired by a friend who had taken to teaching himself songs on the guitar; I thought I’d help out.

This song required many failed attempts to arrive at its final state; I like the song a lot, it was the first single for that record, but there will always remain that perfect imagined version that exists somewhere, but perhaps was never really real or achievable. Alas.
