Notes : 
Dm* - although you are playing the C bass with the Dm it is also effective
to add this C into the chord played.
Fm6 - this is made up of the notes  D  F  Ab  C     all with a bass of F
**  - this is where you can play an arpeggio (notes C^, G, E, C) on 
the higher octaves. Have a listen to the song.

Guitar Chords are located at the bottom of this page.
