Thread Name: Joni Mitchell Dulcimer's tuning
Subject: RE: Joni Mitchell Dulcimer's tuning
Peter T is right...all the tabs are ways for guitarists to play the dulcimer part. I have searched for ages but it sems JM dulcimer tunings are shrouded in mystery!! Unless someones knows better. However..I have worked out a reasonable version of 'Case of You' using the DAD tuning and also for 'Carey'. California is also posible in the same tuning by using bar chords, but I'm struggling with it. It's just a matter of experimenting with dulcimer chords. I do know that she re-strung her dulcimer, putting the bass string in the middle which could be the reason that tunings are hard to find.
Hope that may be some help to you.
