🗝 C#m

Numbered Circles: Fingers used to play chords on frets & strings
White Numbered Circles: Optional Notes / player preference only
Barre Line: One finger holds down multiple strings    R: Root Note
Unmarked strings: Play open   X: Don't play string     B: Bass Note

Right Handed Charts:

Please Note: I have used 2 x B chord voicings. During the verses, the B chord (7th fret) is more in keeping with the steady flow of barre chords up the neck.

During the choruses it is probably easier to play the B chord (2nd fret) as there is less distance between chords.
