JONI MITCHELL TUNINGS
                        -----------------------------

                                               written by Howard Wright


I thought I'd put together a little piece on Joni's tunings because I've
recently worked out quite a few of the tunings she uses, and it's easier
to list them all in one place than try to TAB them all separately.

I hope to get round to tabbing at least a couple of the songs mentioned
in full, but it takes time so I thought I'd write this first to give the
basic info.

Two 'standard' tunings which she has used quite a bit are the open G and
open D tunings.


Open G is (from low to hight) : DGDGBD

Open D is (low to high)       : DADF#AD


I say 'standard' tunings because these have been used by a lot of people.
The open G tuning is used a hell of a lot by Keith Richards for example.

Another favourite of hers is a variation on the open D which I call the
Dadd9 tuning.

It is   :  DAEF#AD


There are also a couple of other tunings I've worked out, though I've only
found her using them on one particular song.


Anyway, here is a list of songs with their appropriate tunings. I hope to add
to this list as I work out more songs, but I've got a feeling that she has a
small number of tunings which she uses on a lot of different songs, rather than
inventing a new tuning for every new song.
If you play around a bit you might start to get the song worked out for yourself
- once you've got the right tuning, things are a lot easier !

Thanks also to Jared White for sending some tunings he knew, and to Jimfre Bacal
for sending some others (courtesy of Patrick Willoughby).

 Remember that you can tune down and then use a capo to get the same sound

- so instead of tuning to open D (DADF#AD), you could tune to open C (CGCEGC)
 then put a capo on the 2nd fret.


I've tabbed 'Free Man in Paris' and 'People's Parties' already - check out
Nevada for those (but use a mirror site !)

If you have any trouble finding them I can mail them to you

I hope to TAB some of the others soon

Howard
