Fire Island Chords

   
Fire Island
Fountains of Wayne

notes:
1)Gm7/C-C  (you are coming from a Gm7 chord so when you go to C, just hang on the Gm7 
a little longer) You can also substitute Csus4-C for Gm7/C-C if you find it easier.
And if you want the super easy way, just play C every time you see Gm7-C/C
2)A7   /C#    Dm  -  during the solo. This is just a typical bass climb, just play the 
A7 then the Dm and the bass can climb to C# on the in-between.
3)Eb9 (or   Gm7/Eb)
