The songs and lyrics are transcribed accurately and include Joni’s critical guitar tunings (over 40 are cataloged in the book). This collectible hard cover, 512 page book contains a beautiful photo section, a foreword about Joni’s ground breaking guitar style and an extensively cross-reverenced Tuning Index for those in search of a deeper understanding of her approach to guitar.
