From Janis: Eric Waters is clearly a man of many talents, as evidenced here. He taught classical & jazz guitar at George Washington U. for 16 years, owns and runs Waters Music Design, which has produced tracks used by VH1, Verizon, Georgetown U. and a bunch of others, and has books out through Mel Bay Publications, a company familiar to pretty much every guitarist I know. In-between that, he managed to create this lovely video while quarantined! 

(Janis Ian)

Better times, better times will come.
Better times, better times will come.
When this world learns to live as one,
oh, better times will come

When we greet each dawn without fear
knowing loved ones soon will be near
When the winds of war
cannot blow any more
Oh, better times will come


Though we live each day as our last
we know someday soon it will pass
We will dance, we will sing
in that never-ending spring
Oh, better times will come
