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.

the final "Being Alive", but it slows down, with grandeur.
