Ex­am­plE joni mitchell style

Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

Here’s a first fin­ger chal­lenge: open tun­ings can al­low you to use just one fin­ger for chords. Joni had po­lio as a child, which af­fected her fret­ting hand. Us­ing one fin­ger barre chords are ev­i­dent in Big Yel­low Taxi, Morn­ing Mor­gan­town, Lit­tle Green and oth­ers.

note the change of chord at the end of this bar; this is a move not too dis­sim­i­lar from an­other ex­po­nent of open tun­ings, Keith richards.
