I've got the chords symbols listed above the lyrics like you might see in printed music books. However, unlike those books, I've tried to pick voicings that are near each other on the neck. Additionally, the lyrics to each verse are broken up and listed below the chords with a number in front to denote which verse it is. I'm interested in feedback for or against mixing the symbols in like this. I've tried to transcribe this as true to the Western Swing form as I can. For a simpler version, don't play the G9 and C#dim7 and play the other chords in standard open string positions. Chord symbol explanation: At the top is the name of the chord. ====== means the nut A number to the left is the fret number Each of the six vertical columns means a string A number on a string refers to which finger to use (suggested) A single finger number on multiple strings means a barre A vertical bar (|) on the string means no finger there An 'x' on a string means to don't play that string (mute it by gently touching it if it's in the middle)
