How to play Jolene by Dolly Parton

The Beginner's Songbook

This Dolly Parton country classic has some pretty tricky fingerstyle parts but can be adapted for beginners by simplifying the strumming.

Beginner's should just go for a super simplified strumming or super easy fingerpicking.

The Intro Riff
The fingerstyle intro part in my Beginner Songbook 2 is not right :( Sorry - I thought it was but upon examining it again before doing this lesson I think I got it closer to what is played on the record.

I have two volumes of beginners songs! Each have 100 awesome songs, arranged to sync perfectly with my Beginners Course. Ten songs in each stage, gradually getting more challenging as you go through. Each song has tips and strumming suggestions and I honestly think this is the best Beginner's Songbook ever :) Both are spiral bound so stays open easy! Rave reviews from all over the world and the best companion to my course you could have! Appreciate your support.
