I've made a few corrections here.  They appear in parenthesis (I realize
that this is generally the notation for a bass tone within a chord, but I
don't know of the way you're supposed to show corrections, and I don't
want to simply delete Scott's work) next to Scott's original chords.
Thank you for taking the time to do this Scott!
