The transcription team: Sue, Dave, Howard, and Marian

This archive features guitar and piano transcriptions of many of Joni's songs - including dulcimer tabs, bass guitar notation, and lead sheets as well. Originally conceived and designed by Sue Tierney, the archive has since evolved into a constantly growing project maintained collectively by Sue and fellow guitarists Marian Russell, Howard Wright, and Dave Blackburn (with special thanks to Mark Domyancich). Many other guitarists from around the world have contributed transcriptions as well.

A number of Joni's guitar tunings, although tuned to different pitches, have the same relative relationship between the strings. The "tuning pattern" ignores the pitch and groups tunings with similar relationships. For a more detailed explanation, see the Tuning Patterns page.
