  1. Hi, I’m having trouble working out some of your chords. I’m not great at chord chemistry. Could you please chart these chords, if you don’t mind too much –
    Bb/C, C3dim7, Eb/Bb, Eb/F,Bb/D, Db/A, F/A, G/B
    I’m thinking it might be easiest for you to tab it this way, I don’t know what it’s called but… D=000232.
    Thank you!!! 🙂

  2. Anything after the slash play as the bass note.

    Then if you want to find the fingerings for the other chords check out this classic script for an interactive keyboard:
