Funny story about this tab:

I was over at my friend's apartment a couple of years ago and we were just jamming away on the guitar. She went and got all of her tabs that she'd printed out and started going through a couple of them. When she came to this one, I thought it looked quite familiar (seeing how I had made it and all) and checked the name of the person who made it. Sure enough, my name was on there. I asked where she got it from and who made it. When she looked and saw my name on there, she completely freaked out!

I've never been able to play that d/f#... How do you guys do it? I just cant get a finger up to that f#.... I can wrap my thumb around to hit a g, but I cant get it back any more than that.

CWRenaudin - 2006-08-09

to play d/f# (200232) all you have to do is finger a regular d (000232) and wrap your thumb around to the second fret low e string. go to its actually on this website and it has a picture of a guy fingering it.

mattanic - 2006-10-11

if you can't wrap you thumb around you can always leave a note out and play it buy putting you index finger on the low E string, your middle finger on the G string your ring finger on the B string and just don't play the e sting. If gives you just about the same sound, and its a whole lot easyer to play.

ok so in the second line of the first verse it says G but when I play it I use this one chord and I cant remember its name but it looks lke this.
320010. try it, thats how i play it! other than that i think the rest is pretty well done. thanks!
