1st and 5th-strings should be muted unless specified as open.

The numerous string-scrapes in the performance suggest that many of the
chords are played in high positions. The low-third in Bm and recurring
D-note is likely the 4th-string being left open. There is a certain
logic to these voicings - more familiar forms may be used if preferred.
