alanabit '10 Amazing Female Guitarists' (32) RE: '10 Amazing Female Guitarists' 06 Jul 12


Did Joni play the guitar on "California"? I think the track is on "Blue" and from what I remember, she would have played dulcimer to James Taylor's guitar. Please correct me if I am wrong. I only heard many years later that Joni Mitchell had effectively been forced to play guitar mainly in open tunings because childhood polio had left her unable to form chords in the usual way in standard tuning. I am a huge admirer of her work. She is easiy the best singer I have ever seen live.
