Chicago - Dialogue Part I And Ii chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
The following is my attempt to tab the song reasonably close
to studio and live recordings that I've heard (except for the 
instrumental sections, in which case I've suggested chord patterns.)

The chords aren't difficult for the intermediate and advanced 
player, but may give the beginner a bit of trouble. They are
definitely worth the effort to get right, since the bass notes
really stand out when played as written. 

As for the strumming pattern, listen to the recordings and 
come up with something that makes you happy. 

Oh, and good luck with the high notes!
