Mitchell Joni - A Case Of You tab

    _________________
   / Joni Mitchell  /  I think this song is about someone being in love with
  / A Case of You  /  some on although they have major troubles. "I am as
 / Blue           /  constant as the northern star" is a quotation from
/________________/  Shakespeare's play, Julius Caesar. Caesar says it, and it
                   shows how egotistical and conceited he is. Maybe whomever
boyfriend is being talked about in this song is the same way, and that's causing
the troubles.

Tuning: D# G# C# G# G# D#
To help you recognize this tuning, it's really just E A D A A E (where you
tune the G-string up to an A and the B-string down to that same A), and then
drop all the strings a half step. I think it'd be called a "G#sus4-tuning".
There's also a 2nd Guitar playing, but I'm still about to tab that out.
This is Joni Mitchell's part:
