    I have been trying to find the energy to learn me a new song on my guitar and I'm drawing a blank. I can't even think of a new one that I want to learn. I love to play acoustic, slowed down, sadder folky type songs. Anyone out there have an idea? If I knew how to upload off of my phone I would put an example of what I play, but I'm far to techtarded

    Do a remake of Dolly Parton's 'Jolene'. This was pretty cool when I first heard it.

    Good call Paul. I never thought of learning it. Now that I have, I have the urge to make it my own. Thanks man.

    Cool. I don't like the original, but when it's slowed down like that ... it's pretty badass.

    It's Dolly Parton's Jolene, slowed down on a record player to 33RPM.

    Try THIS LINK instead.

    Sounds like Roy Orbison.

    I do like Parsons version as well.

    This was one of the first "complicated" songs I learned as I was learning years back. It was a practice of finger picking that I hadn't previously had. It helped me grow as a player, I still bust it out frequently because I can play the absolute crap out of it cause I practiced so much at it as a beginner.

    Yeah me too.
    It eventually led me to selling my rig to play acoustic only.
    Quit playing altogether years ago. Sometimes think about picking it back up.
