Lionel Richie - Hello tab

After seeing someone on American Idol actually sing while 
playing a simplified version of "Hello" (he did a great job) 
almost identical to the first version (in Am) on here, 
I decided to "correct" it to include more accurate chords;  
believe it or not, these 'more complex' (and i.m.h.o. beautiful) 
chords are actually easier overall to play than those in v1., 
since you just slide your hand back and forth...check the 
chords first, and you'll soon see what I mean. Note I leave 
blanks instead of x's to denote dead strings, and put 
parenthesis around notes that you can play if you want; also 
the words are placed roughly where they would be sung in 
relation to the chords, which are played on downbeats...OK:
