Richard A chord diagramBB (sorry mate, I lost your full address sometime during the EMI
episode) sends this new fingering which makes it much easier on the
fingertips- Nic :

Chords and fingerings that I use (ignoring the capo at first fret).  It
is far easier to move the first or second finger to play the A chord diagramF#F# on the
high A chord diagramE MajorE string

Note: for A chord diagramE minor 7Em7 Boo Hewerdine plays this chord with the A chord diagramD MajorD string open, but
I prefer the sound of the chord with the A chord diagramD MajorD string fretted.

Just keep that tab going throughout the song (except the bridge).

The trick is to fret the A chord diagramBB and e strings 'the wrong way round' (i.e.
pinky on A chord diagramBB string, 3rd finger on e string) so you can slide down to the
second fret on the e string for the last beat in each bar (marked *
above).

e.g. for a A chord diagramCadd2Cadd2 going to C(b5)add2 (second bar)

I think that's about it, any comments (or better chord names!) welcome.
