Based on : Islands In The Open Session  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaxYYtwGbb4)

I wanted to keep the same feel as the Open Session so I used some deep chords. I also 
pluck the first half the song and strum the second half. This song has a lot of 
flexibility, this is simply my favorite way of playing it solo on an acoustic guitar. Enjoy!

I think that the first two chords, A# and F, should be changed to Dm and Am, respectively. I can see why you chose them, but the minor chords, as opposed to the major ones, give it the calm, dark tone it's supposed to have. Overall, great chart. Very helpful! :)

The chords are supposed to be Bb and Eb :)

i really like the sound of this one. however i do believe your Dm7 should be 10 12 10 10 10 10 instead of 9 12 9 9 9 9.
