Lesson notes

John Prine's Souvenirs was originally released in 1972 on his second album Diamonds In The Rough, but then rerecorded for his 2000 release, Souvenirs. Like many of his songs, there is a distinctive guitar intro in his signature fingerpicking style, which is explained in great detail in this lesson.

The song is played with a capo at the second fret, using just the three chords in the key of D - D, G and A7, with a couple passing bass runs and nice hammer on fills.
