Piano music transcriptions
This page has my transcriptions of a number of Joni Mitchell piano songs. So far I've done piano transcriptions for "Blue", "For Free" and "River". More Joni Mitchell piano transcriptions are available on the piano page of the main JoniMitchell.com site.
Note that these transcriptions are my attempt to transcribe the piano music exactly as Joni played it on the originals. Most Joni Mitchell piano songbooks adapt the piano part by including the main melody in the right-hand part. To me, this often ruins the beauty of the original piano part, and it makes much more sense to enjoy the piano part as it is, and to keep the melody in the vocal part only.
Use the links below to view the Joni Mitchell piano music I've transcribed. All transcriptions are available as pdf files, and some are also available in a "page-by-page" format that includes comments for each transcribed page.
