most of these chord names are wrong. To be a 6add9 chord, it has to contain the 6 and 9. It's not hard, just count up from the tonic. Your 69 chords are actually maj7 chords.
And Fb13, is that a joke. If so, ha ha, awesome. If not, dude, that's pretty bad

@todd_bertuzzi
If you've got your shit together, what did you need a tab for in the first place? Also, how many White Stripes songs can you play so that they sound correct, rather than like some beer-gutted, middle-aged, run-of-the-mill bar band doing a hamhanded cover? This guy worked hard to tab this out for us, so cool it, Mr. One-Contribution-to-the-Site-Total.
