Sex Kills by Joni Mitchell

Tabs with lyrics

SEX KILLS   -   Joni Mitchell
                ---------------------------------------


                           From the album Turbulent Indigo
                           tabbed by Howard Wright
                           [email protected]



This is quite an easy one in some senses - only a few shapes to
learn - but I find it bloody hard to play those shapes !!!

If you've got slim fingers you'll be fine, if you havn't and
you have trouble fretting the 4 middle strings on the same fret
while leaving top and bottom strings open, then you'll have to
work on it a bit.....

This is tabbed from memory - I havn't actually heard the new
album yet !!!  - but Joni did two songs from it on TV a while
ago and I videoed them and this was one of them.
I'm pretty hazy on the words - if someone wants to send them
to me, I'll put together a complete TAB with all the words too.

As it is, I've put in words where I can remember them and left
gaps elsewhere.


It's a while since I played the video, so I don't think there are
any extra middle eights that I left out - but if I have missed
out a section then let me know !


The tuning for this is ( low to high ) :   Chord diagramD MajorD Chord diagramA augmentedA Chord diagramC majorC Chord diagramFF Chord diagramG+G Chord diagramC majorC


As usual, I'll just TAB out the shapes. The strumming style for
most of it has the bass note played first, then the other
strings are strummed a bit, though certain notes are picked out
from these - especially the notes from the top two strings.

You'll have to check with the record to get it spot on, but
it might look something like this for the intro :

Intro :
-------

A-------7--7-----------7--7---7-------7---------------------
D--0----0--------------0---------------------------------


For the Intro these two shapes are repeated a couple of times

From now on I'll just give the shapes ....
