Thread Name: Horizontal guitar, Joni Mitchell
Subject: RE: Horizontal guitar, Joni Mitchell
Fred McKenna played in that style. His guitar was standard tuned and he chorded by pressing down from the top while the guitar was across his lap. Joni would have no doubt known him or at least seen him play on Singalong Jubilee and The Don Messer show.
