Give That Boy A Hand

NOTES:  Blessed be, a song in D.  Well D with no capo anyway.   Good thing, too.  Theres a couple tricks to this one, for our purposes at least.  Any time you see anF#m in parenthesis, it’s basically a walk to Gmaj7.  The F#m, when not in Parenthesis, is in the “Aaaaaahh” chorus, and is a barcode on the 2nd fret and Eminor fingering.
