Guitar chords transcribed by Sue McNamara
Tuning: BF#D#D#F#B "Joni" Tuning: B79035
Here's a song I fell in love with when I first heard it on Turbulent Indigo. I learned the chords from watching Joni's fingers on the PBS documentary on Troubadours of Folk Festival, where she first introduced the song. This is very classic Joni melody writing, on a par with Both Sides Now in its folk simplicity. The chords are not that exotic or jazzy, but there's a fluidity to the chord changes that really heightens the emotions of the lyrics - a Joni trademark! As before, I have not included the right-hand fingering - it's best left to the individual player to flesh out. Select a tuning that best suits your voice (the fingering is the same for all three): Tuning on Turbulent Indigo album: BF#D#D#F#B (my guitar goes dead this low!) Tuning on live performance: CGCEGC Also can be played in DADF#AD
