Dolly Parton's "Jolene" at 33rpm

Lesson description: A few years back, some genius posted a slowed-down version of this Dolly Parton classic on YouTube. It's one of the coolest things I've ever heard!

Slowing it down, and the resulting pitch shift turned the song into a dark and strange mournful epic tale. Usually, when you slow a tune down it's entertaining, but not actually good. In this case, it works wonderfully.

From a technical standpoint, there's tricky fingerpicking, bluesy little fills, and some serious work to get everything to flow together. Good luck!
