Album discoveries 2020

2020 has been a year of discovering a lot of different and new music. For this reason, I have decided to compile a list of some of the albums I have discovered this year. Hopefully it may serve as an inspiration for you to embark on a similar music discovering journey.

Joni Mitchell – Ladies of the Canyon (1970)

One thing that really draws me to her music is her use of unusual guitar tunings. From these tunings, she can play chord shapes that in standard tuning would be difficult or impossible to play. These tunings and chord shapes often result in chords that are unmistakably “Joni Mitchell chords”. These “Joni chords” appear throughout Ladies of the Canyon as well as Song to a Seagull (1968) and Clouds (1969)
