5.0 out of 5 stars From Song to a Seagull, to Court and Spark 22 Dec 2002
By Alain Moreau - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I own this book now - here is what it is. Paperback, with cutout cover. Published by Charles Hanson. I was mistaken. The albums covered are from "Song to a Seagull" to "Blue". It seems to be complete for those albums. It is certainly a gem in that there are color photos of Joni in Laurel Canyon, along with some black and whites of concerts and with friends. This book also contains guitar tabs, along with the piano and vocal chart. Be advised that Joni uses her own unique tunings when she plays, so the tabs are somewhat simplified.

Original Review:
I just wanted to add a note here for those looking for this book. I owned it once, and wish I still had it. It contained all of the sheet music from the albums, "Song to a Seagull" through "Court and Spark". The only currently available folio containing any of this material is "Anthology", which is mighty thin for a true musician/music lover. Her newer albums are also available in complete album folios. "Complete" has some artwork from the albums, photographs, and nicely typeset charts. I believe it contained guitar tablature, along with vocal and piano accompaniment. It is a shame to have it out of print, as her music is a historical record, in many ways.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not All There 10 July 2006
By Randy Remote - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Sheet music|Verified Purchase
Joel Bernstein did not finish this songbook, it went to printing without 2 of the albums being transcribed, and essays he intended are also missing. Hopefully the publisher will correct these problems. As it is, there is still alot of valuble info on Joni's guitar tunings and arrangements, but the transcriptions for "Hejira" and "Taming The Tiger" are wrong-there may be other errors, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joni Mitchell Complete Guitar 24 April 2010
By Laura C. Stanley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Sheet music|Verified Purchase
Joni has an ingenious, unique way of tuning and picking her guitar. All other guitar books of Joni's songs I have found are in standard tuning so I could never accurately capture Joni's sound using them which was very frustrating. The Joni Mitchell Complete Guitar Songbook is the first book to provide the means to play Joni's songs as heard on her albums. It is truly an enlightening resource. Her songs roll off the guitar like magic when the tuning is correct.

I recommend this book as an invaluable resource for those who love Joni songs and want to delve deeper into them by playing them in her unique way. When I use this book, I experience the feeling of treading the same ground as the master guitarist herself walks on the guitar.

The book also contains a chart so one can easily find which songs are played in a particular tuning. It is pure fun! I hope it becomes available again soon.
