    I recently worked on You Turn Me On I'm A Radio tuned to D. What a great tuning. It got me interested in working on more Joni tunes and I found this book that have so many Joni tunes and her massive tunings...

    I've had that book for some years and do play a couple of her tunes. But, Joni's music is the hardest I've come across to do 'her' way. For me, any of the tunes that I do work on are in a style that I've come up with on my own or have taken from other artists who have done an interpretation such as Tom Rush who was, I think, the first to record her music [other than Joni]. This book is invaluable in knowing the tunings as well as progressions.

    She is sui generis. We are lucky to have had her in our lives.

    I think I get all gushy over Joni pretty often here, but this is something I need. She's really one of the most creative minds in music history...any day I listen to Joni is a better day.

    When i read this i thought how apt the term 'gushy' was to describe how all my amazement at her gifts to us rekindled in just hearing the chords to Amelia given above. So i went to the live performance video of Amelia with Pat Metheny (which i saw live) and gushed again over her lyrics, vocal delivery, etc
