Hold On Live Chords

This tab was compiled using the Afterglow Live DVD/CD and also with
a little help from the Mirrorball music book. I suggest watching the
Afterglow DVD or listening to the CD as you learn it because she
plays it a lot differently than the Mirrorball or Fumbling Towards
Ecstasy versions. I think this is pretty close, I apologize for anything
that may be wrong.
