Blue Motel Room
Guitar tablature transcribed by Mark Domyancich and Howard Wright
Tuning: CGDFAD "Joni" Tuning: C77345
I'd like to thank Howard Wright for giving me the basic chords and the tuning. The chord shapes and tablature are for the electric guitar part, played by Joni. The acoustic guitar (Larry Carlton) uses standard tuning, so the chord shapes are different. The strumming patterns are pretty approximate, but listening to the album will help out a lot. Note that for the third chord of the verse, Joni sometimes plays x05655 and sometimes x05555 for an extra "blue" touch! Joni also uses some open strings to "fill in" between chord changes - listen to the original to see how this works.
