James Taylor Performs Joni Mitchells "All I Want"



James Taylor performed Joni Mitchell's "All I Want" for an exclusive YouTube guitar lesson.

After James posted the song by Mitchell a few months ago, many fans asked for the "guitar only" version and Taylor did not disappoint. In the video, Taylor recut to share just his hands while inching up the guitar volume to help illustrate.

"All I Want" is from Mitchell's 1971 album, Blue, on which James played guitar.

The intimate relationship between the two musicians was public by the summer of 1970, with Mitchell visiting Taylor on the set of the movie Two-Lane Blacktop.

This guitar lesson is the latest installment in Taylor's ongoing series of guitar lesson videos.
