I love the voicing you have used, and the alternate positions you offered for the chords. Your instructions are also very much appreciated, as part of this version. Very well laid out, and easy to not only learn the chords, but "see" the thinking behind the chord structures you have used. You have even supplied the You Tube link! Wonderfully complete! Thank you so much!
