Joni Mitchell….. JONI MITCHELL is on the list. An excerpt from her RS write up:
She had mastered the idea that she could tune the guitar any way she wanted, to get other inversions of the chords.
Wowwww… Alternate tuning a guitar. Joni Mitchel mastered alternate tuning and made the list and Steve Vai didn’t:
No Kirk Hammett, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Steve Lukather, Brian Setzer, Tommy Emmanuel, Sonny Landreth, john 5 or Jennifer Batten. There are dozens of guitarists that could make the list and didn’t. But Paul Simon did.
