Why are the chords in all the wrong places? It makes an already difficult song overly complicated.

And what does this mean? F#m7-5/C F#m7-5/A
/C would imply C being the bass note (and same for /A), but why is there a 5 in there? Surely a 5 only means a 5th chord, or a power chord? That can't be what the transcriber intended

I agree with CBH. It's actually not that hard of a song, but the way this is arranged makes it more difficult. Also I just play a regular Am in place of F#m7-5/C and F#m7-5/A. It's much simpler and it fits perfectly.
