Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I'll assume you know the rythm of the song and everything, so I'll just put the chords...

I know the chords are right, but they add some weird notes to it I tried to get 
them right, this is the best I could do...

  
C#7:  x4345x   <<<< It's not your regular C#7, It's like a C#7 +m
F#m7: 242222  or  242252
A:    x02220  or  577655
B:    x24442  or  799877
D:    xx0232  or  x57775
Dm:   xx0231  or  x57765
C#:   X46664
F#m^: xx4x55

This is what the 2nd guitar basically does while the other one plays the F#m7...

Actually it only does the F#m^ chord, but I added the other part for you to 
understand the rythm...

Not quite perfect.

The chords, played correctly are 7#9 chords. 4th (d) string 4th fret, g string 3rd fret, high e and b on fifth fret.

For the technical music theorists out there, the note on the high trying, if you make it a g# (4th fret) that makes it a 9th chords, if you lower it another 1/2 step to a g makes it a b9. Often makes for a real cool substitution or embellishment for your typical 7th chord.

On strings 2-5 looks like :

--------------x------
--------------10----- the b string in this voicing is where the 9th is.
--------------9----- extra fun play with rising it and lowering it a
--------------8----- fret
--------------9-----
--------------x----

what is listed as minor 7 chords, both the c#7 and the f#7, are 7#9. Technically not wrong, except the are major and in the dominant 7 family.
