NB:
     *Capo chords are shown in parentheses.

    **nc indicates no chord is to be played.

   ***The A and Ab chords (or with the capo, G# and G chords) 
      shown in parentheses, indicate brief passing chords, 
      which don't have to be played (if desired, they can be 
      omitted, or the Bb chord can be played at the same time 
      as A and Ab bass notes, or even just play the bass notes
      on their own). (Likewise, if using the capo, play the A 
      chord with G# and G bass notes).
