    The unnecessary /'s are now gone. Happy? LOL!! 
    **One millionth update! lol!**
    So I just saw the "Mean" music video and the beginning verse is the
    Bm instead of D so it's been switched:) The Bm/G in the chorus is now
    gone as well, it's just a G all the way through (which is easier too!)
    Taylor plays with no capo in the video and plays with a capo on 4
    when playing live. IF you want to transpose this up or down 2 half
    steps, go for it:) just click the transpose button above and move or
    lose the capo! Also I'm keeping the Asus4 in the chorus, but just play
    an A if you want;)

    \{x02230\}-or a regular '' \{x02220\} can be played. 
    *Also, I use a really thin pick for this song, it makes it sound more
    "Banjo-ish" lol:)
