Christmas Time Is Here - Vince Guaraldi

Chords are rather difficult, but the best approximation I could think of. Hope it's easy 
enough on guitar, it's pretty rough on piano.

Fine tab for a great song, thank you very much!It might be helpful, though, if the voicings were included. The chord names look pretty scary, that's true; but on the guitar, they are not that difficult to play - even for a folkie like me! Here's how I play them:Fmaj7 (t)1-3-3-2-1-0Eb9b5 x-x-1-2-2-1Bm7b5 x-2-3-2-3-xGm7/C x-3-3-3-3-xFmaj9 1-0-2-0-1-0 or x-x-3-5-5-3Dbmaj x-4-3-1-1-xGb9b5 2-x-2-3-1-x or x-3-2-1-1-x (not the full chord but easier to play after the Dbmaj7 as you can just keep the barree finger (1st fret) and move down the fingers one fret on the A- and D-string) I play Eb9 where Ebdim is suggested here: x-6-5-6-6-xD9 x-5-4-5-5-xI play Db9 where Bbm-maj7/Db is suggested here: x-4-3-4-4-xI play C9 where the succession of Bbmaj7/C Bbdim/C is suggested here: x-3-2-3-3-x

Sorry, this comment has become unreadable after my edit. Second try:

Fmaj7 (t)1-3-3-2-1-0
Eb9b5 x-x-1-2-2-1
Bm7b5 x-2-3-2-3-x
Gm7/C x-3-3-3-3-xF
maj9 1-0-2-0-1-0 or x-x-3-5-5-3
Dbmaj x-4-3-1-1-x
b9b5 2-x-2-3-1-x or x-3-2-1-1-x (not the full chord but easier to play after the Dbmaj7 as you can just keep the barree finger (1st fret) and move down the fingers one fret on the A- and D-string)
I play Eb9 where Ebdim is suggested here: x-6-5-6-6-xD
9 x-5-4-5-5-x
I play Db9 where Bbm-maj7/Db is suggested here: x-4-3-4-4-x
I play C9 where the succession of Bbmaj7/C Bbdim/C is suggested here: x-3-2-3-3-x
