*  Slide Am7 fingering up two frets and back, playing E and F# on the slides
>  Bass run leading to next chord
h  Hammer on extra notes on treble strings

**********************************************************
Ha!  How many people know off-hand how to play a B7 half-diminished?
So I'm adding the chord fingerings:

G       320033
Am7     X02010
C/G     332010
D       X00232
BÝ      X23230
E7      020100
Cm7     X35343
F#dim7  XX4545

Also, "chorus B" should use Cmaj7/G instead of C/G:

Cmaj7/G    332000
