Uncommon Chord Voicings for Solo Guitar

Fmaj7add10     =  x87555
C#dim          =  x42020
F#m(addb5)/C#  =  x4421x  (easier to play alternative is F#m/C# - x44222)

Any other split chords with an E on the bottom (most of the song) can be 
played with an open bottom fret.

If you have a band, the guitar should play the top chord with the normal 
voicing, and the bass player should play the bottom line.
