Guitar and Piano Transcriptions

Furry Sings The Blues

Guitar chords transcribed by Howard Wright

Tuning: DAEGCE  (other transcriptions in this same tuning)
"Joni" Tuning: D77354
Tuning pattern: x77354  (others in this same pattern)

Author Notes:

Note that the Hejira version of this song is played in D, but the live version (on "Shadows and Light") is played a tone lower (tuning: C 77354 or C G D F Bb D).

For the Hejira version in D, if you want to avoid tuning some of your strings higher than they are in standard tuning, you can use the tuning in C and then add a capo at the 2nd fret to bring you back to D.

You only need to know 7 chord shapes to play this, so I'll start of by giving the shapes, then I'll write the chord names above the words so you know where the changes come.
