Caren will show you the acoustic guitar part that features some interesting challenges in an eccentric form, some unusual timing, played against a sparse backing track.

It will be important to hold the song together with the guitar part! The writer uses a basic pattern, and then plays around with dividing the bar in several ways. A good right hand is nothing without good, strong chords from the left hand, so we'll also take a look at using our fingers with dexterity, strength and independence.

This is an unusual song, you'll need to stay focused on the ever changing form and the details in the timing. It's a great challenge if you are looking to work on focus, accuracy, some sneaky timing inside a steady groove. â€"Jolene” is in the key of G major, in 4/4 time and a tempo of 61 BPM.
