Joe Hill  Joan Baez

Hi folks,
I was very happy that Joan went to NYC to support OWS and in fact really
happy that someone filmed her with a perfect angle so we can we at last
the chords she plays. Especially, the Esus4 chord that makes it sound so
particular. You will notice that her capo is on 4th, but she is, as usual,
half a tone down, so put yours on 3rd. See the video at:
time you read this). The fingerpicking pattern as she played at woodstock
is easy and I tabbed it here for you. She sometimes plays the E*** part,
as I named it, in a simplier way, but I thought I'd show you how it goes.
for comments or just to say hi!
Cheers to all Joan fans!
