I hope to get round to tabbing at least a couple of the songs mentioned in full, but it takes time so I thought I'd write this first to give the basic info. Two 'standard' tunings which she has used quite a bit are the open G and open D tunings. Open G is (from low to hight) : DGDGBD Open D is (low to high) : DADF#AD I say 'standard' tunings because these have been used by a lot of people. The open G tuning is used a hell of a lot by Keith Richards for example. Another favourite of hers is a variation on the open D which I call the Dadd9 tuning. It is : DAEF#AD There are also a couple of other tunings I've worked out, though I've only found her using them on one particular song. Anyway, here is a list of songs with their appropriate tunings. I hope to add to this list as I work out more songs, but I've got a feeling that she has a small number of tunings which she uses on a lot of different songs, rather than inventing a new tuning for every new song. If you play around a bit you might start to get the song worked out for yourself - once you've got the right tuning, things are a lot easier ! Thanks also to Jared White for sending some tunings he knew, and to Jimfre Bacal for sending some others (courtesy of Patrick Willoughby).

I've tabbed 'Free Man in Paris' and 'People's Parties' already - check out Nevada for those (but use a mirror site !) If you have any trouble finding them I can mail them to you I hope to TAB some of the others soon Howard From email@example.com Tue Feb 21 13:41:50 PST 1995 Article: 12997 of rec.music.makers.guitar.acoustic Path: unixg.ubc.ca!unixg.ubc.ca!rover.ucs.ualberta.ca!tribune.usask.ca!canopus.cc.umanitoba.ca!newsflash.concordia.ca!uunet!newstf01.news.aol.com!newsbf02.news.aol.com!not-for-mail From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Mafleisher) Newsgroups: rec.music.makers.guitar.acoustic Subject: Re: Joni Mitchell Tunings Date: 20 Feb 1995 16:54:06 -0500 Organization: America Online, Inc.

Some use Open E, in which the strings bear the same relationship to one another, but everything's tuned up a full step from the notes I've indicated. I think it puts too much tension on my strings; causes breaks. If you like the sound, use Open D with a capo Final one: "California Kitchen Tuning" I don't know the notes, but here's how to get there from standard tuning: 1st--leave it alone 2nd--up one step 3rd--down 2 steps 4th--leave it alone 5th--down 2 steps 6th--down 4 steps The only song I know she uses this one on is "Sisotowbell Lane"
