How to Play Hank Williams Jambalaya on Guitar

Hank Williams Jambalaya was the first song I ever learned how to play on the guitar.

I was so excited when I learned to play my first song and am sure you are too. The song Jambalaya has been around for years and is a very fun song to play and sing, especially on the guitar.

It was recorded by the country music hall of fame legend Hank Williams who had many country music #1 best sellers during his time.

In this video beginner guitar tutorial, we will be learning it in the Key of C which we will have only two chords, C chord and G chord.

I hope you have a lot of fun learning to play this song, as I can remember many years ago when I was first learning to play guitar how awesome the feeling was being able to play my very first song on the guitar.

C                                  G
Goodbye, joe, me gotta go, me oh my oh.
