Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD' on ultimateGuitar.com)
12th Oct 2014

CAPO: 3rd fret (Sounds in the key of F)

Chord names and fret positions are relative to the capo:
Em9  = 020032    Bm9    = x20222   Gmaj7  = 320002
F#m7 = 242222    G      = 320033   C#m    = x46654
Em7  = 020000    Gmadd9 = xx5335   Bm7    = x24232
A7   = x02020    Gm     = xx5333   Fmaj7  = 133210
D   = xx0232     B9     = x2122x   Dmaj7  = xx0222

The Gmadd9 and Gm have a Bb bass, but I felt the shapes above 
worked better on guitar. You could just play a Gm/Bb (x20033)
in place of those two chords if you prefer.

Please remember to star rate this tab, thanks

It's not Bb6 - it's Bbm6/9 - or Dbm6/9 when played without capo or on piano.

Thanks for the comment and rating, Simon. It's a couple of years since I submitted this, so I've had another listen.I've made some slight amends, but I now hear it as Gmadd9/Bb with a pull-off to a Gm/Bb. I also amended the last two Bm9 in the verses to B9, which I think is more correct. It's sometimes a compromise, I'm still trying to make a guitar tab that isn't too tricky to play for the average guitarist, not necessarily a transcription for a keyboard player. See what you think anyway...
