On #ThisDayinHistory 1943, singer songwriter Joni Mitchell is born in Alberta Canada: Even a bout of polio as a child had left her unable to form the chords with her left hand that her ear wanted to hear, so she began experimenting with non-standard guitar tunings that would later become part of her signature sound early on ..#AceHistoryNews – @AceHistoryNews

#AceHistoryNews – Nov.07: When the folk-music revival of the late 1950s and early 1960s came to Saskatoon—the town in which she spent most of her childhood—Mitchell resolved to learn the guitar in order to become a competent accompanist at sing-alongs #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/7363 When her mother refused to chip in, citing Joni’s earlier abandonment of the piano, the woman Rolling Stone would later name the greatest female guitarist of all time saved up and purchased a baritone ukulele……..A bout with polio as a child had left Mitchell unable to form the chords with her left hand that her ear wanted to hear, so she began experimenting with non-standard guitar tunings that would later become part of her signature sound early on………It was not as performer, however, but as a songwriter that Mitchell would first make her mark………Most first heard Joni Mitchell’s music as interpreted by Judy Collins, who made a hit out of “Both Sides Now” two years before Mitchell released her own recording of the song herself. In later years, Crosby, Stills and Nash would score a bigger hit with the Mitchell-penned “Woodstock” than she herself would, as would hard-rockers Nazareth with their 1973 cover version of “This Flight Tonight,” from Mitchell’s landmark 1971 album, Blue. #JoniMitchell #SingerSongwriter #woodstock #AceHistoryNews
