This Flight Tonight  -  Joni Mitchell
                -----------------------------------------------

                                     From the album 'Blue'

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



The tuning for this is based on an open A chord diagramG+G  ( DGDGBD ) but with the
bottom string tuned right down to a very low, flappy G, so the
actual tuning is GGDGBD.

I think you also need a capo at the 2nd fret.

In case you have trouble getting tuned up when you use alternative
tunings, here's an easy way to get there.

Joni herself uses this notation -  she writes normal tuning as :

 A chord diagramE MajorE 5 5 5 4 5

i.e tune bottom string to an E, then play 5th fret and tune next
string to this, 5th fret, 5th fret, 4th fret, 5th fret.

Get the idea ?

So the tuning for this song is :

A chord diagramG+G 12 7 5 4 3


(I find it easiest to tune the A chord diagramA augmentedA down to a G, then the top A chord diagramE MajorE to a A chord diagramD MajorD
 - you can check these by comparing with the other A chord diagramD MajorD and A chord diagramG+G strings,
then tune the low A chord diagramE MajorE all the way down to A chord diagramG+G - check with what used to
be the A chord diagramA augmentedA string, but is now a G.)


I've written out the chord shapes at the end - you might find it
easier or quicker to learn the song from these if you know the song
pretty well already. If you're not so sure about strumming etc, I've
tried to give the outline in the TAB.


Note - words are written below the TAB, chords above.
