Excuse me for mistyping the Aadd9 chord. I noticed it didn't show up in blue lettering about halfway through the song, and that's because it is spelled Add9, not Aadd9. It's a carelessm mistake, and I apologize. I hope you can still learn the song well anyway.

*Careless.

Oh and one more thing. Ebm7b5 doesn't appear in blue lettering either. The chord is correct, and the tableture for it is as follows:

E--2-|
B--2-|
G--2-|
D--1-|
A----|
E----|

Basically an F#m with an Eb note on the D-string.
