Song: When the party's over
Artist: Janis Ian
Composer: Janis Ian
Album: Between the lines
Tabbed by: DJ
18th Feb 2016

I've indicated the chord shapes I believe Janis uses in the
studio track, which mostly sound quite bright being on the top
4 strings, there is no need to detune the bottom E if you stick
to these shapes. In the absence of an additional bass guitar
though, you could use the dropped D tuning and occasionally add
some weight by picking the bottom D note on the 6th string,
instead of on the 4th string, as Janis does in her live solo
performances. In her more recent live gigs she drops the capo
down a semi-tone to the 1st fret, and adds a few extra chords
(See additional notes after the main tab).

TUNING: DADGBE

CAPO: 2nd fret (sounds in key of E)

PLEASE IGNORE ANY POP-UP CHORD BOXES the webpage may automatically
suggest, and use the shapes indicated below.
