>From watching the old Police live tapes, you can see that
Andy plays the add9 chords something like this:


I recommend doing the troups of three with fingers 1, 3, 4.  This way,
you can slide up from 6-7 on the final chord with your pinky and your
index will be in position over fret 4 to begin the cycle again.

I recommend barres for the chorus chords, to reproduce the original
feeling.  Try the 5th position A chord diagramA augmentedA and D, 7th position E, 2nd position
F#m, and 4th position C#m.
