Waltz #2 (XO)

First of all let it be said that this tab is probably more
representative
of some of Elliott's live versions than the album version...said!
Also a big thanks to Scott and Chadwick for getting me started.

Intro:

Am (x02200) (4 bars)

Play this two times:

intro
once...i actually favour playing the intro twice! If you care! :)

by step, i believe a "whole step" is meant... aka, tuning like this:

D G C F A D

I also disagree with the chord form for D7/F#, even though it's just an awkward chord in general, a much easier way to play it is:

XX4535

In the intro and chorus, it's played like you said, but the C transition is different
