Tabbed By: Mike

This is a tab for Gabe Bondoc's version of the classic Harry Connick Jr. arrangement.
Video right this way --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3vp1k8wvw0

This is a great little jazzy tune that can be played with one guitar. I've tabbed out
how he plays each of the chords in the video (more or less) so pay attention!

*****************
EDIT
*****************

To make this a bit easier to play I put a capo on the 1st fret (still using the exact
same chord positions so the numbers here would all shift down by one to be relative to the
capo). This lets you play the low E string open (because now it's an F) throughout the 
verse. It also let's you play the C11 in an open B position like so:

   C11*
e---0----|
B---0----|
G---6----|
D---7----|
A--------|
E---7----|
*relative to capo 1

A little less stretching can go a long way. Merry Christmas!

Intro: Play around between F6add9 and F#6add9. Cut with C11 just before the verse.

Verse:
**During the verse, he mostly just plays around between the F6add9 and Gm9 chords
  It's up to you how you want to jazz it up but basically he'll just hit a couple
  strings on the up stroke. This is just an example:

  F6add9      Gm9      F6add9        Gm9 ...
