Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Artist: Joni Mitchell
Song: Little green
Album: Blue

TUNING:  D G D G B D  (Open G tuning)

Top and bottom E strings tuned down to D
A string tuned down to G

CAPO: 4th fret (Sounds in the key of B)

N.B. To play along with the original recording on the 'Blue' album
requires further tuning down of all of the strings to be
slightly flat of concert pitch. With a chromatic tuner it is,
very approximately, minus 30. 

Chord names and fret positions are relative to the capo:
Gmaj7   = x04434    G      = x00000   C        = x55555
Gmaj7/B = x44030    G2sus4 = x00210   Bb       = x33333
Am11    = x22010    G9     = x00203   C6sus2/A = x20210

Hammer-on the G2sus4, and pull off back to the G

[Verse 1]
Gmaj7  Gmaj7/B            Am11      G      G2sus4  G
 Born----------  with the moon in cancer,
Gmaj7  Gmaj7/B        Am11            G         G9
Choose--------- her a name she will answer to,
         Am11
Call her green, and the winters cannot fade her,
Gmaj7/B      C
  Call her green for the children who've made her,
       Gmaj7   Gmaj7/B  Am11            G         G2sus4  G
Little green---------     ...be a gypsy ...dancer--------!


[Verse 2]
Gmaj7       Gmaj7/B           Am11      G      G2sus4  G
       He-----------  went to Cali - fornia,
Gmaj7   Gmaj7/B       Am11        G           G9
Hear------ing that everything's warmer there,
       Am11
So you write him a letter, and say, 'Her eyes are blue',
Gmaj7/B  C
  He   sends you a poem, and she's lost to you,
Gmaj7                   Gmaj7/B       Am11          G   G2sus4 G
      Little green----,        he's a non - con - former!


[Chorus]
                C
Just a little green,
           Bb               G      G2sus4    G
Like the colour when the Spring is born----,
             Gmaj7/B    Am11                   G    G2sus4   G
There'll be crocuses to bring to school to - morrow-------!
               C
Just a little green,
           Bb                       G          G2sus4  G
Like the nights when the northern lights per - form,
            Gmaj7/B        Am11
There'll be icicles, and birthday clothes,
     Gmaj7/B   Am11              G         G2sus4   G
And sometimes    ...there'll be sorrow-----------!


[Verse 3]
Gmaj7         Gmaj7/B           Am11   G             G2sus4  G
       Child----------  with a child   ...pretending-------,
Gmaj7          Gmaj7/B     Am11   G                        G9
       Weary----------  of lies   ...you are sending home,
       Am11
So you sign all the papers in the family name,
Gmaj7/B  C
             You're sad and you're sorry, but you're not ashamed,
Gmaj7                 Gmaj7/B  Am11          G           G2sus4 G
      Now Little green------      ...have a happy ending-------!


[Chorus]
                C
Just a little green,
           Bb               G      G2sus4    G
Like the colour when the Spring is born----,
             Gmaj7/B    Am11                   G    G2sus4   G
There'll be crocuses to bring to school to - morrow-------!
               C
Just a little green,
           Bb                       G          G2sus4  G
Like the nights when the northern lights per - form,
            Gmaj7/B        Am11
There'll be icicles, and birthday clothes,
     Gmaj7/B   Am11             C6sus2/A    G        G2sus4
And sometimes     ...there'll be sor------------row!
