Joni Mitchell

This is one of my favorites from Joni Mitchell. The title cut from the "Hejira" CD.

  1. Love this one too, and Amelia.

    This to me epitomizes the departure she made from the folksy Joni to her Jazz/adult Joni.

    I believe here she's using an instrument that I can't describe well for you right now.. I met the guy who invented it and he did a demo for me, but it was over 30 years ago and I can't remember much but that it was like a guitar without frets or something and it gave that full, metallic strings sound that is so unusual on these songs...... it was slim if I remember, not wide in the body. What was that thing called? Do you have any idea of what I'm talking about?
