Topic: Happy Birthday, Joni Mitchell

Ms. Mitchell is 75 years young today, and has long been one of my favorite female musicians. Her voice is especially notable, and this jazzy piece (called "Twisted") from her 1974 album "Court & Spark" really shows it off in a fun arrangement: 

ACOUSTICS:  Cordoba D10-CE / LaPatrie "Concert" / Takamine GD30CE-12 / Norman ST30
ELECTRICS:  EP Les Paul Custom Pro / Gretsch Streamliner G2420T / EP Thunderbird Pro IV bass
AMPS:  Peavey "TF" VK212 / Traynor AM150T / Fender Rumble 150
EFFECTS: Boss ME-80 Multi-effects / Ibanez WD7 wah / Grand Orbiter V3 Phaser

Please tell me you were kidding.  She was born in Canada and is a giant as a singer/song writer  and also painted  some gorgeous pieces.  Here is a link to her website:     

Music is what feelings sound like.
Music is life, that why our hearts have beats.

Re: Happy Birthday, Joni Mitchell

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
then the piper will lead us to reason
And the new day will dawn for those who stand long
and the forest will echo with laughter
If theres a bristle in your hedgerow dont be alarmed now
it's just a spring clean for the May queen
Yes there are two paths you can go by but in the long run
there's still time to change the road you're on
Your head is humming and it wont go in case you dont know
the pipers calling you to join him
Dear lady can you hear the wind blow and did you know
your stairway lies on the whispering wind
D Dsus2 D Dsus4 D Dsus2 D Dsus4 C Cadd9 C Cadd9 C
For the solo and the remaining lyrics use a Am G F G barre chord
And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks the lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to know
how everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
the time will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll
