Taimane Teaches Her Strum Pattern for ‘Jolene’

By Greg Olwell

In this video lesson from Taimane Gardner, she shows off a cool strum she uses for “Jolene,” a classic song from Dolly Parton.

For this lesson, you’ll need Am, G, and C chords, so your fretting hand has it pretty easy. The strumming hand, as always, is where the magic is. So, tune-up, tune-in, and make sure you can feel the groove before you try to cop it.


Taimane is also about to embark on her Spring Eternal tour, which hits several locations in California. You can find tour dates at her website, taimane.com.
