Legend:
w,h,q,e,s = whole,half,quarter,eighth,sixteenth
H,Q,E = dotted half, quarter, eighth
+ = tie
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
r = rest
^ = strum
h = hammer
p = pulloff
. = staccato
x = mute or percussive
() = optional note

Performance notes: I found the G#7 in the bridge pretty rough 
initially; slide the C#min7 up to the 8th fret, add the pinky at 
the 11th on the 3rd, then oblique the index finger to the 9th on 
the 5th.  Cleans up fairly quickly.

Adam694 - 2005-03-22

Hey, love the tab. I am a relatively new guitar player and was just wondering if you could tell me how the fingering goes for the C#min7, G#min7, and F#min7. i have been trouble trying to find those chords, the ones i have found don't seem to work. Thanks.
