Dreamland

Guitar chords transcribed by Marian Russell
Tuning: EBDF#AB   "Joni" Tuning: E73432

On the Saturday morning of the 1999 Boston Jonifest, Catgirl was telling
everyone how much she loves the version of Dreamland on the Hissing of 
Summer Lawns Demo (HOSLD) and said how much fun it would be if we could all 
play it together for the afternoon performance.  The HOSLD had only recently 
become available to members of the JMDL and, as you may or may not know, in 
the HOSLD version of Dreamland, Joni plays guitar, whereas for the officially 
released version of Dreamland on Don Juan's Reckless Daughter, there are 
only percussion instruments accompanying the vocals.  Anyway, I liked 
Catgirl's idea, so I sat down with the recording and worked out the 
following transcription which we used to perform the song that Saturday 
afternoon.  When I returned to Vienna and had a closer listen, I realized it 
wasn't quite right, but I like this arrangement and wanted to preserve it as
part of the JMDL Guitar catalogue.  I hope you will enjoy it.
