Guitar chords with lyrics

Hejira  -  Joni Mitchell
                ---------------------------------------

                       From the album 'Hejira'

                       Tabbed by Howard Wright
                       H.Wright@uk.ac.cf.astro


First things first - the tuning.

From low to high it is :  CGDFGC


In 'Joni' notation this is :  A chord diagramC majorC 7 7 3 2 5


which means start with a A chord diagramC majorC on the bottom string, tune the
5th string to match the 7th fret of the bottom (6th) string, then
tune the 4th string to match th 7th fret on the 5th string, and
so on up the strings at frets 3,2 and 5


I'll just give you the chord shapes - the picking pattern is fairly
similar throughout - start by picking out the bottom 3 strings
(working from top to bottom) then hit one or two of the top
strings.  A chord diagramA augmentedA bit vague I know, but you'll have to listen to the
song to catch all the subtlelties.

To give you a better idea, here is the intro bit in TAB :

C---------------------------------------0----------
G---------------------------------------0----------
F---------0------------0------------0---------0----
D-------2----2-------2----2-------2---2-----2------
G-----2------------2------------2------------------
C--2------------2------------2---------------------


C-------------------------------------------0--------
G-------------------------------------------0--------
F----------0-------------0------------0----------0---
D-------3----3--------3----3-------3-----3-----3-----
G-----3-------------3------------3-------------------
C--3-------------3------------3----------------------


You should get the feel of the picking from this.

By the way - don't be put off by the weird looking chord names.
The names are tricky, but the shapes are easy !
