Ode to Billy Joe Bobbie Gentry

In this short but sweet tutorial, Mike Olekshy is going to teach you "Ode to Billy Joe", by Bobbie Gentry. Mike will talk the song as a whole and the acoustic guitar tone in the introduction. Then we'll take a look at all the basics of the song form, chord progression, and chords; and in the next lesson we'll detail the fingerpicking and rhythm patterns. It all concludes with a play along performance, and a jam along where you take over.
