Happy Christmas (War is Over)
Jordan Phillips, lead singer for The Kicks, teaches “Happy Christmas (War Is Over)” by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. “Happy Christmas” was recorded and released as a single in 1971. It peaked out at #4 on the UK charts in ’72 and then again charted at #2 in 1980 after Lennon’s tragic death. This song, originally written as a protest song, has become a standard holiday classic. It has been covered by dozens of artists over the years and has been voted the 9th best holiday song in a public poll done by VH1.  

Jordan plays a Gibson Acoustic Hummingbird in the lesson.
