Ladies Of The Canyon  -  Joni Mitchell
               ------------------------------------------------
                 From the album 'Ladies of the canyon'

                 Tabbed by Howard Wright

First things first - the tuning.

>From low to high the strings are : A chord diagramC majorC A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramD MajorD A chord diagramFF A chord diagramC majorC A chord diagramE MajorE

Or in Joni notation - A chord diagramC majorC 7 7 3 7 4

(The numbers tell you which frets to use when comparing the tuning of 2 strings)


I'm just going to give you the shapes - there aren't a lot of different
chords to worry about, and the basic picking style is fairly simple to pick
up from the record.

Weird names .. but that's what you get if you use strange tunings !



Use the last three shapes for the little introduction bit, then change to
A chord diagramC majorC alternating with Cadd4 and you go into the verse.


She tends to use the chords in pairs, alternating between them.

  So use    (A chord diagramC majorC and Cadd4)      as a pair.

            (C7add4 and C9add4)  as a pair

   and      (C6add4 and C6add9add4) as a pair.

The verse just uses these 3 pairs of chords, plus the A6/7sus4 chord.


Play around with these and you should pick it up pretty easily.

A chord diagramA augmentedA final point - she tends to hit a few open strings between chord changes, and
sometimes hammers on to a new chord shape after strumming a few open strings.


Enjoy !
