Neil Patrick Harris – Being Alive chords
I cannot say in terms of guitar playing. These are the chords for piano. Arranged from a copy of the lyrics, intense watching of the musical, a copy of the P/C score, and a copy of the sheet music and chords for the "solo" version. Arrangement is my own. PLAYING NOTES: C6/9 is played as a bass note (C, G or A, vary it as you wish) for 1 beat, followed by the chord played on the second beat. Generally, it starts quiet, and the dynamics and tempi increase over the breaks between sections.

I don't have access to an instrument to check the final "Being Alive", but it slows down, with grandeur.
