========================================================================== ========================================================================== VERSION TWO: Ab OPEN TUNING: Ab-Ab-Eb-Ab-C-Eb (or G#-G#-D#-G#-C-D#) Using a chromatic tuner will make this a bit easier. 1st string DOWN a semi-tone to D# 2nd string UP a semi-tone to C 3rd string UP a semi-tone to G# 4th string UP a semi-tone to D# 5th string DOWN a semi-tone to G# 6th string DOWN to G# an OCTAVE below the detuned 5th string The low 6th string tuning gives the song a real growly fret buzz drone. FINE TUNING: Only needed if you want to play along more accurately with the album. Joni's guitar is not quite in correct pitch and is a little under. To be much closer to matching the original recording, fine-tune ALL six strings down a little further by approx. minus 20 using a chromatic tuner. For the Ab to Db chords, slide up from open strings to the 5th fret barre. In the link, slide up from the Ebsus7 into the Ab *. For the Dbadd9, hammer-on and off the chord from the open stringed Ab chord. Please IGNORE ANY POP-UP CHORD BOXES the website might automatically suggest and just use the typed shapes shown below. Note that three of the chords below have a couple of variations each.
