Lesson Info

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.
