I cannot say in terms of guitar playing. These are the chords for piano. Arranged from a 
copy of the lyrics, intense watching of the musical, a copy of the P/C score, and a 
copy of the sheet music and chords for the "solo" version. Arrangement is my own.

PLAYING NOTES: C6/9 is played as a bass note (C, G or A, vary it as you wish) for 1 
beat, followed by the chord played on the second beat.

Generally, it starts quiet, and the dynamics and tempi increase over the breaks between sections.
