Hi and welcomce to Guitar Noise. Pop on over to the "Meet and Greet" page and introduce yourself when you've a moment or two.

Here are two non-barre chord ways to play C#m:

XX2120

XX6654

Depending on the song (and I've not heard this one so this may not be the case), you can often substitute C#m7 for C#m and a very easy way to play C#m is:

X46600

Hope this helps and, again, welcome to Guitar Noise.

Peace

Those fret numbers David gave you are the strings from the low E to the high e.

IOW, in this order, EADGBe

so that first chord he gave you of XX2120

means not strumming E and A string (6th and 5th)
fret 2 on D (4th string)
fret 1 on G (3rd string)
fret 2 on B (2nd string)
open string on the high e string (1st string)

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

No offence meant by this, but i dont understand how some people cant read tabs. When i first started playing, i looked at a tab, then tried it the reverse way and it sounded terrible, then i tried it the correct way and it worked. Just a statment. No offence meant

That's as good as asking . . . except you get it right the first time.

Bm and C#m ... sounds like Mr. Sandler was using barre chords. When you learn them (I realize they are hard but some day you will learn them) songs like this will be easy. :D
