The other versions of this tab have some parts incorrect, o I thought it a good idea to publish a correction 
with the correct chord forms and voicings. The D7 used is ONLY the voicing shown at the bottom, 
sometimes called (incorrectly) an Am/F#. ALWAYS use the form shown at bottom for that chord.

The voicing for the D7 chord that that you suggest here does not make much sense. As it is here, your chord should be called D7/G. It just doesn't sound right. You probably meant D7/F# (2-x-0-2-1-2) like it is in version 2?

No, I meant exactly what I said, and I gave proof of what I said in the process of this tab being passed. Go yourself and look up what notes make a D7 chord, whether what I said makes sense to you or not is irrelevant, the fact of the matter is that what you have been calling an Am/F# or a D7/F# is nothing more than a D7 chord. It IS admittedly not played in the most common of voicings, but it IS, note for note, a simple D7 chord.

I submit that it is perhaps your own accepted standard of looking at guitar chords that is in the wrong. Habits are easy to come by and can be hard to break, but that is no reason to avoid stepping out of the box and looking at it from a different angle than you have been used to doing in the past. It IS the same chord and the same formation as in version 2, however I have named it accurately whereas version 2 did not. Granted, it IS easier to remember an Am chord with the bass note dropping along a scale as in from A to G, to F# and finally E, but that is merely a WAY of remembering the positions, it is NOT actually an accurate way to name the chords which is the problem that we are discussing. And by the way, at one point in my life I DID name those chords the same way that you do, but I discovered the error of my ways by simply looking at the notes that make up chords.

I will give you the evidence of what I am saying just to make it easy for you. Go to this page and look at the chord shape in the very bottom right corner: http://www.jamplay.com/tools/guitar-chords/1-standard/4-d/6-7 It states and I am quoting: "This is the D7 chord played with a F# bass note."And the shape that you will see there is that same chord you previously called an Am/F#, and now are calling a D7/F#. The notes make a D7 chord, but the F# note has been placed as the bass note. Simple! It tells you the variations, but what you will find is that the combination of the notes D,A,C and F# make a D dominant 7 chord. That is in fact the typical D7 chord played on the first 4 strings with an extra F# note added to the bass. It is what it is, and it aint what it aint!
