Little Green
===================
Artist: Joni Mitchell
>From album Blue
Written in 1968 (although Blue was released in 1972 I believe)
Transcribed by: Tino Meinen [email protected]
Tuning (low to high) D G D G B D
Capo 4th Fret
Chord shapes:
Gmaj7 Bm6 Am6 G2sus4 G G7sus2 C Bb
DGDGBD DGDGBD DGDGBD DGDGBD DGDGBD DGDGBD DGDGBD DGDGBD
x00434 x44030 x22010 x00210 000000 x00203 x55555 x33333
(The low bass D string is only played at the very end of the song, in the last chord
which gives a very nice effect of relaxation!!)
I've indicated the fingering of the right hand for the intro.
During the rest of the song the thumb (p) always plays the 4th and 5th,
and the three fingers(i,m,a) play 1st, 2nd, and 3rd string.
The time signature is 8/8 (3+3+2) most of the time,
but sometimes changes to 4/4 for one measure (e.g. bar no 2 in the intro)
('H' means Hammer on)
