Welcome to another terrific edition of Thumpin’ Thursday! It’s Jeff Copperthite today bringing you another great song for http://laptopsessions.com/.

Going to a band that has treated me well in terms of getting viewers, I bring you another song by Ben Folds Five called “Smoke”. It is from their album “Whatever and Ever Amen”, which I have yet to draw from. I loved this song ever since I first heard it, and would most often be the track I just kept repeating from the entire album.

I love the piano-string strumming that Ben does when this song is performed. Consequently, I only have a keyboard. Therefore, I decided to do a guitar rendition of this song. I hope you like it!

I just crossed 11K views – in only 8 days since I crossed 10K. Thank you so much! We are nearing the halfway point of session-a-day. Can you believe it? We’ll keep posting – you keep coming back to http://laptopsessions.com/ !

Be sure to check out Jim’s latest session tomorrow!

Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, Jeff’s acoustic cover song music videos are no longer on YouTube, but we decided to keep his cover song blog posts up.  We figured these music blog entries would be good for posterity’s sake and because Jeff always gave such insightful posts each Session.  We hope to see Jeff’s impressive catalog of acoustic rock songs here on the Laptop Sessions cover songs and origianal music blog again in the future.  But, for now, please make sure to check-out hundreds of other acoustic cover songs from all of your favorite bands here on the Laptop Sessions music blog!
