Lesson notes

Both Sides Now was a hit for Judy Collins before Joni Mitchell released her own version in 1969 on her album Clouds. The song is done in Open D Tuning with a capo at the fourth fret and only uses a couple of simple chord shapes. The challenge with this song is to get the subtle chord changes in the right place. The lesson includes a ‘Chord Challenge’ segment for a little theory work and the attached tab only shows the rhythm of the changes, so listening and watching carefully are very important here.
