This is just my version; it probably wouldn't be considered traditional jazz
chords. I like to use the following picking pattern throughout the whole song:
(With D chord for example)
E --2-----------|
B --3-----------|
G --------3-----|
D -----0-----0--|
A --------------|
E --------------|
I played F#m7 as (x04222)
Please comment with questions or suggestions. :) ( I've uploaded an mp3 of this
version for picking pattern reference.)
