I dunno if tritone sub is the right word, but I think it's the idea. You still get the B -> C and F -> E resolutions, and G resolves to F#, perhaps. I guess it could be thought of as an incomplete C(maj)13 #11 or something, but it's called F#m7b5 because it's functioning as a ii in a minor ii-V-i. That's me guess.

That's about it yeah. Multiple explanations for it, but F#m7b5 (sub for C) is a good one, plus the standard resolution for a chord etc.

Rofl at how complex this song can be, haha.

When I learned it in Guitar class at school, it was 90% open chords, with just a few maj7ths here and there. Good song though.
