                        Case of You  - Joni Mitchell
                      -------------------------------


                                    From the album 'Blue'

                                    tabbed by Howard Wright
                                    spxhaw@uk.ac.cf.thor

NOTE :
-------

The original has one guitar part and a part for another instrument,
(dulcimer ? ) which uses an open tuning of some kind, and plays
the introduction bit. I've worked out a way of playing this on
guitar using an alternative tuning, and I've also written out
chord shapes which work well for standard tuning. (All chord shapes
given at the end). Please note - I've written the chord names for
normal tuning above the TAB for alternative-tuning. The chord names
do not neccessarily correspond to what the TAB plays.
Words are written under the corresponding TAB - I've tried to put the
chord changes in the right place with respect to the words, but it might
not be 100% accurate.


The dulcimer part using alternative tuning is basically the same for each
verse - but I only tabbed it once for the first verse.

For the dobro/dulcimer part use EADAAD tuning, i.e tune B down to A
and G up to A.


\ - slide
h - hammer on
p - pull off
