Very nice, sounds good...I was looking for a simple alternate tuning for this song, easy in-easy out when sitting in front of a group of people. This fits the bill.
Thanks

Keep em coming.

Dude your little fit at the end of the page? what's that all about, you really gotta chill.

I'm rather sick of people giving low ratings because they don't understand music. It isn't an attack on musicians, it's just a rather suggestive comment on how most "musicians" now don't know much about music at all. I apologize if you're offended but people have to realize that ignorance is not bliss.
+20   June 11 2007, 07:03 pm by Ivory Strings |
Yeah, this is a good alternate version - the best out of the six, in my opinion. Thumbs up. Also, you have to realize what type of "musicians" websites like this attract, and learn to live with them because they're all there. The fact that they might not know much about music theory doesn't make them illegitimate musicians. Just a friendly observation. =)

Im glad that you put the real names of the chords rather then the shapes. It pisses me off when someone writes a tab that says capo 3 then puts down the open shapes rather then the real chords. It makes it harder to work with if i want to do a piano or lead part.

Good work

sounds good...I like it! :)

While it may not make them illegitimate musicians, it certainly makes then illiterate musicians. You have to have a solid understanding of theory and such to go far in any type of music, whether it be guitar, piano, voice, or some other such instrument.

Awesome. I was trying to convert the song into standard, but with no luck. Double drop D isn't too bad though. Thanks.

For every great song, there is a great tabber. Cheesy, I know, but fits nonetheless. Great tab.
August 9 2007, 10:00 pm by Shinoda_Ex |
Haha, thanks.

Great...5 stars...one thing I found was you could play the Augmented 3rd of Bm7th in the chord progression too...Perfect tab anyways...

i dont know shieat about music, but im learning, good cords
+2   August 19 2007, 09:16 pm by pearl182 |
just wondering and i amn't great at music theory so sorry if this is stupid but you say D on the high E is played open. but it's on the 4th fret. so Dsus2(i think thats the chord you used) cant be played in double drop D. do you understand me? sorry if i'm wrong and it sounds good either way. i'd just like to know if i'm making sense to myself.

thanks for the tab, i've been using it alot.
+1   August 23 2007, 02:46 pm by FiredUp |
This Sounds Good To Me Man keep up the good tabs buddy
+1   August 28 2007, 11:15 pm by Shinoda_Ex |
@ pearl182

Dsus2 is played as 000232 in double drop D.

D - 2 - "E" - Second
B - 3 - "D" - Root
G - 2 - "A" - Fifth
D - 0 - Root
A - 0 - Fifth
D - 0 - Root

000320 would be considered a D5 and 000324 would just be a Dmaj since the third, or F#, is there.

The root, the second and fifth are all in that chord, so I believe it's a Dsus2... unless I'm mistaken.

I gave it a rank 1 just because you seem to be a ****ing douche. I don't know what a augmented third is, so does it matter? I'm learning ffs. I think you learned it once upon a time too, so **** off moron
+53   October 3 2007, 12:27 am by Honeyslide |
Chan, pretty good arrangment...but I have to say that you have a flawed understanding of theory, and I want to point this out because you seem to be putting down those who "don't" get theory. I am a musician who knows theory and can read and what not, but I still say the best players rely on their ear.

That B min chord voicing is good sounding, but there is no such thing as an augmented third. THat would simply be a 4th. The chord (as you tabbed it) is spelled xBDADD, which make the following chord tones:

B=Root; D=flatted third (i.e. minor third); and A= flatted 7th. That spells out a simple tun of the mill B minor 7th chord thats lacking a 5th (which it doesn't need it anyway). Don't confuse people here who are actually trying to learn theory. That's my understanding anyway, and I'm been a trained musician with a performance degree. I've never heard of an Augmented 3rd!!!

Good work on the tab though Chan, but less lecturing next time - especially when you're talking smack about stuff you don't know about.

very good tab...actually it is probably the best tab that i have looked at in a long while...it plays very well and not having to go to that really weird tuning is great...thanks for making this great song playable without having to retune your guitar for an hour...good job
October 8 2007, 10:28 pm by Shinoda_Ex |
@Honeyslide: Yeah, I get what you mean. All of the theory that I know is primarily self taught with whatever I learned from my music teacher.

this is better than the other ones it sound just like it five stars

lol, i think ill leave the stimulated debate on "musicians" to those more learned than myself, and bothred to argue about it for that matter. Anyhoo, its a really great tab, im glad someones managed to tab it properly at last, i wouldnt of known where to start. 5 stars.

thats nice man

wtf...my strings suck lol. while i was tuning it the string poped.wtf....why do they pop when you are releasing pressure????
+2   February 26 2008, 10:04 pm by Killer band |
but besides that it wounds great with only 5 strings to lol ;)
March 9 2008, 03:50 pm by Shinoda_Ex |
You might have a little nick in your saddle that could cause the string to pop. I guess it's not uncommon.
+18   March 18 2008, 05:03 pm by TMcCaughan |
Instead of this G5 - 055030, I throw in 550030 I like the deeper G note
+2   March 29 2008, 12:04 am by DaveMN |
Great job cheers for this, makes the song heaps easier
March 29 2008, 10:38 am by mrtk |
this is one great tab!
can anyone please write down the chord progression for the interlude/ solo part of the song?
+1   April 28 2008, 05:38 pm by guitars4all |
awsome stuff man...and yea i agree with most of the people about the "musicians" because i prolly fit what you're talking about. willing to learn though...thanks for a great tab
+5   April 29 2008, 12:20 pm by Floor Demon |
Good tab. Like TMcCaughan I prefer to use 550030 as the G in the verse and chorus. I also prefer 200230 in place of the 000232 you have for the Dsus2. It sounds fuller to me on one guitar and you get the rising bassline sound you have on the recording.
+7   May 7 2008, 10:04 pm by Maya666 |
Hi!
First of all I'd like to say that's a very, very good tab. That said, maybe I'm just one crazy girl, but I don't see why you called the chord Bm7aug3. The notes of this chord are : B D E A (F#) but since you're tune in D there is no open E string (or no E at all)so I don't get where you get your aug3 (and I'd prefer sus4 since the third is alredy there). I guess that Bm7 would be enough but maybe I'm just wrong. I would like an answer from somebodu please!
May 11 2008, 02:26 pm by wraith88 |
I like this tab a lot, much simpler to set up and it has a nice sound. I also like TMcCaughan's 550030 chord. I just wonder if anyone has a way of playing that descending riff the above tab as on the 4th string (5-5-5-4-4-4-5-4-0) but still using the 550030 chord. Any ideas?
+2   May 21 2008, 08:10 pm by Rabidsoccerball |
Wraith do this it requires a slightly different and more difficult G chord but it sounds fuller if you ask me and is probably good practice.

555030 (Middle finger on low d, ring on the a, pinky on d, pointer on the b string)
554030 (ring on low d, pinky on a, middle on middle d, pointer on b)
550030 (ring on low d, pink on a, pointer on b)

Make sense?
+4   May 21 2008, 08:20 pm by Rabidsoccerball |
Actually, I realized it sounds just the same if on the first chord you play 55030 then proceed on as I already said, so it would be:

550030 (played ring on low d, pinky on a, index on b)
554030 (same as above, ring pinky middle pointer)
550030 (ring pinky index)

Music theory is for manufactured guitarists like yourself. The best ones play it by ear.
+2   June 20 2008, 04:51 pm by Paddyo3584 |
this is so much better than having to tune to b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b. guitar s arent supposed to go like that and i broke about 20 strings on tht one tab
June 20 2008, 04:51 pm by Paddyo3584 |
and can anyone post some solo chords?
June 21 2008, 12:50 am by wraith88 |

I don't reaaly know in- depth chords. I'm fifteen and I've taught myself everything I know. Although I realy don't know toomany chords I can still figure them out by reading the tabulatry of the chords. I think it was a pretty great tab. Thanks a lot. Keep the good tabs coming.

I'm just having a bit of trouble with finding a good strum pattern, but I'll get it.

This is really good, bro. I've been wanting to play this song for so long, and now I can. Thanks for sparing us the misery of tuning to BDDDDD. You're awesome.
+7   August 8 2008, 04:14 am by serjYankovic |
Dude... bear with me here...

-B minor is.. B C# D E F# G A B
-The III in that is the D... augmenting that would make it an D#...
-Your "Bm7Aug3" is 020230 in Double Dropped D
-That means D B D A D E

D#, anyone?

I'm not bashing your tab, I like it.. But don't be a jerk unless you've done your homework
August 8 2008, 04:16 am by serjYankovic |
Close... Augmenting raises the half step... so the III+ should be a D#

^^^ignore that
+4   August 8 2008, 04:22 am by serjYankovic |
But actually on top of that, a D# would make it a damn MAJOR chord...
+3   August 20 2008, 05:44 pm by jameskirkajfa |
i know this isnt the most accurate solo part but i use a G 300030 and i go sliding up the tones for it... like... 300030/700070\200230 and then go up 300030/700070/900090/10.00.10.0/ 12.00.12.0/

(I used the dots after 10 and 12 so the 0's wouldnt get mixed up...)
but yeah... just slide it up... it sounds pretty accurate... although i knwo its not the actual thing try that out
+2   September 3 2008, 05:34 pm by XAkitAX |
for the verse, you should play this instead of the dsus2; 002032
just a suggestion
+1   October 7 2008, 08:50 pm by guitar+piano=:) |
It's pretty good. Everything that's there is deffinitly right, it's a great song and i think you nailed it, and i absolutly agree with you on the whole don't make a comment on something you don't truely understand thing, cause i absolutly hate it when someone who couldn't name a simple chord sarts critiquing something that they have no idea what they're talking about.

Good job
+9   October 7 2008, 10:06 pm by haggisllama |
music is a language. if you can read and write it perfectly you're still not as good as someone who can actually hear it. the point is, don't get all pissy at those of us that actually have an ear for music. the name doesn't matter, it's all about the sound. i almost had respect for you as a tabber because this sounds perfect and i love that i dont have to break strings trying tune to play this song but theres no reason to be a jerk. and by the way, i have read books and ive never seen an aug3 chord, so don't tell me to go read about something you made up.

this is an okay tab. you kind of ignored the bass notes.
October 16 2008, 10:45 pm by blast offffff |
augmented 3rd? sounds fancy. you know there's no such thing though, right? to augment something, you raise it up half a step. If you augment the 3rd in a Bm7, then you just raise the third up and make it into a B Major Minor 7, more commonly referred to as just a B7. good try though :]
October 25 2008, 09:44 am by conorstuff |
Great tab (not so great little rant at the end)
I like being able to play this without nearly snapping my b string and flattening the e to a b.
Thanks for the effort!
That said, it sounds right but when you go from b7 to a-whatever you could go up to the 4th fret a string and then go into d.. sounds better but then it messes up the fact that the NEXT chord is d, so it might not be 100% accurate. But hey, I'm not complaining.
+2   November 19 2008, 06:10 pm by zoracksbro |
THANK YOU! THANK YOU SO MUCH! this tab is amazing its so much fun to play and it sounds great. thanks man
November 29 2008, 10:01 pm by Digitech250 |
Wow amazing job man, i never even bothered trying the bddddd tuning because i knew i was gonna pop a string. Now i can finally play the song... the dsus2 sounds like its in a different key all together but hey, i trust its right... 5 stars

Alright....First of all, gread tab man...it sounds real good if you put a cappo on second....But...i dont know all that much about theory, but mate...most of the people on this site looking at these tabs wouldnt know what the crap aug 3rd is...Most of the people are here just to learn a great song....so before you go off at people next time... ;-)..anywayz...congratz on making a great tab :D....who cares what the chords are called....
+2   December 24 2008, 03:18 pm by SilvabackTT |
aug 3rd? Did you just make that up? To augment you raise it by a half a step. So aud3 of bm7 = B Major Minor 7 = B7.
Good tab none the less 5/5
January 10 2009, 02:43 pm by Archangel090 |
Amazing tab and kind of glad you didn't post a solo for it. Helped me just come up with one of my own that fits it quite nicely with it I think. Also that thing at the end...totally unnecessary but that's just my two cents.
January 10 2009, 09:14 pm by Lonetree |
I believe that that really weird tuning is ostritch lol. Ostricth might have that B as a D, but I think it's a B... But still, just thought I'd clarrify that for y'alls. I haven't tried the tab, but oh well, AMAZING JOB!!!!!

+1   January 19 2009, 02:54 am by sinForge xJp |
"the name doesn't matter, it's all about the sound." That's actually the opposite of the truth in this case. The song is written in B minor. Were one to augment the 3rd in anything minor, that makes it MAJOR. Try and play this in B major- it'll sound terrible. It's NOT a matter of having an ear for music- it's a matter of claiming you know what your talking about, then telling someone a Bm7 chord has a D# in it, when upon looking at it, it doesnt. The tab is a fine piece of work, but-

*B minor - b c# d E f# G A
i ii iii IV v VI VII

"Bm7Aug3" -> "020230" \__nope
B D# F# A ?-> DBDADD /

THAT is my point... it's not a matter of "ear," but being wrong.
January 23 2009, 08:14 pm by allstar21369 |
I figured out the solo on acoustic with the DADGBD (both E's tuned down to D). If anyone wants it shoot me a message. It sounds awesome.
February 6 2009, 06:18 pm by rocker4life521 |
I love it...THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for tabbing this song the way you did! No more snapped strings or ridiculous tunings! Double D is much easier, and good job dude!

And jameskirkajfa: thank you for the little solo part you submitted there. It definitely works well, especially if you use a 550030 chord and slide up the tones for a fuller sound. Kudos to you man!

I like the tab but I found your little rant at the end alienating. Realistically this site is largely used by beginners who may well not understand all the complexities of music theory. As a musician surely you should be encouraging learners not making them feel bad. I dislike the kind of snobbish attitude of trying to assert superiority by having a go at other people. The best musician I know is a guy who will quite happily sit with friends and talk to them about music in a non paronising way, just because he enjoys sharing it with people. Doesn't seem to matter to him that they have never heard of an aug3...

I completely agree with kt88, and quote him: "The best musician I know is a guy who will quite happily sit with friends and talk to them about music in a non patronising way, just because he enjoys sharing it with people." What's the best about music? That you get other people to hear what you can play, and to hear it sounding good. It doesn't matter if you don't even know what a Standard Tuning is, if you can make a guitar sound good to the ears of other people (although it would we wise to at least know what Standard Tuning is lol). Anyway, excellent tab.

ok you did a good job with the chords but maybe you should learn some more about music because even people who know music only a little should know that an augmented third is the same exact thing as a perfect fourth interval wise. there are few uses for an augmented third and it seems you are just dropping a term to show other people how bad ass you are and how much you think you know about music.
August 10 2009, 08:37 pm by switchrunner23 |
i tried posting but I had to make an acount, anyways my question is: how is about Bm7 Aug 3rd. I understand how the high F# in Bm7 becomes D which is 4 halfsteps that's not an augmented 3rd its a major 3rd or is it? idk Im just confused about why its called a Bm7Aug3

A little Dm7 Advocate here... his rant a the end, I don't think, was meant to alienate anyone or offend anyone. But let's face the facts, frustrated beginners who flock to sites like this often give low ratings to tabs they can't figure out on the fly. I remember when I was 15, learning guitar and I would hope you all would too. As far as I'm concerned, ratings on this site should be allowed to 3+ year performers, regardless of their knowledge of music theory.

Great job I tried learning this song when I was younger however it never sounded right now I find out that it is an alternate tuning and now it sounds great I have been looking for a decent tabs forever now that I have found this one is perfect the only thing missing is the solo however I am not interested in that right now I am quite happy with this tab PERFECT

d is 2320XX and dsus2 is 2300XX wtf is going on here oh and g5 is 33000X, could someone explain
+3   January 27 2010, 04:35 pm by ianthered |
nice little rant there. but im pretty sure an augmented third is just a 4th, but your just trying to sound fancy. its the same thing. that's like if a bird took a shit on your house while you were painting it and you just painted over it. there's still shit there, but now its just a different color.
lol. but good tab non-the-less. very nice how you figured out that tuning.

sounds decent but ruined by the "my head is up my own arse" comment at the end!!
February 7 2010, 07:53 pm by Cody.Guitarist |
You dont actually have to tune down for this at all:

You can use D (g2-b3-e2) and then for the Dsus2 chord just use the D octave (g2-b3-e5).

When you are strumming the Bm7Aug3 and Bm9Aug3 avoid the two E's.

Works for me anyways.
February 9 2010, 03:13 am by tjshepard |
i absolutely loved this song and this is definitely the best tab i found. I've got it learnt in about 10 mins. :)

I don't know what an augmented third is. I suppose I should go read a book and give up on music forever. Don't be such a snide little bitch.
+3   March 16 2010, 03:51 am by entityx |
Regarding your little elitist comment at the end - it's quite hilarious since in no chord would you really refer to a 3rd as being augmented. In all instances you would refer to it as a 4th (or an 11th). So, your two aug3 chords are actually better named as two voicings of the same chord - a Bm11. Except in those given chords, the Bm7aug3 is actually a D6(no 3rd) in function and the Bm9aug3 is a Dmaj13.

Before you get the attitude, make sure you know what you're talking about.
March 19 2010, 01:23 am by rrfan1 |
Thanks so much for this tab. I've been wanting to learn this song but none of the others sounded quite right. Also I was afraid of tuning it to BDDDDD because I didn't want to pop a string. Haha. Thanks!

Great tab! I didn't know this could sound so good on the piano.
April 13 2010, 01:41 am by Crescens |
I also like to hit the ascending bass notes in the verse by fretting the second fret on the low D with my thumb, i.e. 200232.

I have no idea what a frickin augmented 3rd is but I still can play this song, even if I dont know what it is.

I really like this tab very good job! Way to ask people to try to make their own interpretations for the instrumental part
May 18 2010, 11:34 pm by Aikoj |
"especially if you don’t know what the hell an augmented third is"

Do you? o_O
I see no D# present in that Bm7 chord. It's just BDF#A in there. I don't know what you're thinking. An augmented chord would have a much stranger sound too...

Great tab though, saved me a B string.
May 18 2010, 11:36 pm by Aikoj |
but there is no such thing as an augmented third. THat would simply be a 4th.
___________________________________________

In a minor chord, like the one present, a raised third is not a perfect fourth.
0 3 5
0 4 5
If in major, still, they're enharmonic, it definitely exists.
May 18 2010, 11:38 pm by Aikoj |
Nevermind, getting augmented quality and intervals mixed up, augmented would mean you'd raise it twice in that case, since it's minor, huh.
But the enharmonic part still holds true.

I'll stop commenting now, three in a row is enough.
I wish they'd let you edit simply.
-1   June 14 2010, 03:52 pm by c_foster88 |
Someone said there was no such thing as an aug3. That is not true. It's an interval that consists of five semitones. Like major third, minor third, etc, it spans three diatonic scale degrees. It is an enharmonic equivalent to perfect fourth.

i gotta say i don't know all that much about theory and all i know i learned it by myself, so i may be one of those "musicians" you talk about.. anyway, there's no way i would tell you you're wrong because i can play it too and it sounds freaking awesome! thanks for the tab, i like so much better this tunning(:

+2   October 21 2010, 05:04 am by JammiN-ThE-AxE |
Regarding the muscicians debate ,you couldnt be more wrong about needing to know all theory in order to make it playing music. From what ive seen quite a few people that know a shit load about theory tend to be more stuck up and critical about whats going on theoretically rather than actually listening to it properly and making changes to how it sounds. After all music is audio not visual. And yea some of the greatest guitarists just played by ear , one name that springs to mind is the great Stevie Ray Vaughan, theres plenty of others too.

At the end of the day guys, you get two types of musicians: - 1) the musicians (vai, satriani) that spend hours reading books and looking at how other people have done it in the past, and for most of their efforts don't really achieve anything on their actual instrument. Really, can you see Jimi Hendrix or any of the other greats sitting and reading "Guitar for Dummies", which brings me onto the next type of musician, 2) the musicians that play will FEELING and SOUND! (John Frusciante, Ben Harper, Jimi Hendrix) who play through emotion and what sounds right For a start, these guys aren't just copying what 100's of other musicians have done in the past. I have never, and don't intend on reading a book about how to play music, because as a human being, if you have it in you already, then it will come out. I started off playing on a shitty one stringed acoustic, and now I can play piano, mandolin,banjo, bass, guitar and drums (not sucking my own dick or anything) just proving a point. Feel music, don't read it.

Oh and for 'reference purpose', I would say you're a tightly wound prick Chan

November 19 2010, 10:19 pm by Jackieisnoob |
Hi there, could you please explain these tabs further to me as i have no idea how to play them xD. When I hover my mouse over the intro's bm7, bm9 the frets I'm supposed to hold down are different to my guitar tuner's frets I'm supposed to hold down. So, do you know which one I'm meant to play, and what is the strumming pattern? Also, most of the chords the site tells me to play are different to how my guitar chord tuner thing tells me how to play them. Thansk for posting these chords up.

December 12 2010, 06:49 pm by Zieph |
If you feel like add a bit of bass with this tab then I'd suggest:

Dsus2 - 200320 (Switching the Second two octaves down)

Along with the suggested G5 by TMcCaughan it's sounds pretty good.

As for allstar21369's solo, it's sounds alright, a little suggestion is you can add the G and F# lowest D string using your thumb.

d|0x-0x-0x-0x--0x-0x-0x-0x---0~---5--5-5--5-4--4-4--4x-5x-4x-0x------------|

Don't go bashing people who know "less" than what you know about music theory. :P I'm willing to bet you don't know that many folks out there who are naturally gifted for music don't know how to read a single note. Sucks man. Go here in Philippines, I'll introduce you to lots of them. You being able to read music pretty well doesn't make you a better guitarist. The tabs are great, don't get me wrong. I just don't like drama queens and jerks.

Excellent chord chart, just thought I'd let you know though so that you can change it: in your paragraph at the end you refer to an augmented third, which is in fact not a real interval. I mean it's real, but no musician calls it that, if you augment a minor third it becomes major, and if you augment that it becomes a perfect fourth...but really I love this song and you did a great job with it!

Ya, "aerixeitz" put it very nicely. Also, I would add that your notation is ****ed up and now you see the confusion that it causes on the part of the performer when you write stupid things like a major or minor chord with an aug3. It's plain nonsense.

@violins;
Quite frankly, you're a dick. You don't give a rating based on whether or not you like the person who posted the tab. The rating system is for the tab, not the users. It's there so you can let people know whether or not you thought the tab/chords is good or not, and abusing that can cause a good tab to be passed by for ones that aren't as good/accurate.
I say again: You're a dick.

@Shinoda_Ex;
I am very happy with these chords. Certainly sounds a lot better than the way i've been playing the song in question. I am a bit concerned with the G5, though. Perhaps i'm just playing it wrong, but it sounds a little... off. A bit dissonant, maybe. I'm trying to figure a way to fix this, but i'm not having much luck. :/
November 4 2012, 01:32 pm by Capt. Sparkles |
Never mind, i was, in fact, playing the G5 wrong. My bad.

Even though there are 140+ comments, I feel the need go rant. I don't know jack diddly squat about music theory. and no, I know I'm not the best musician out there, but my goodness. You can read every book out there about a subject, learn all theories forwards and backwards, not have it in you and your not gonna make any better of an artist than someone who cannot read who just simply has the talent of playing guitar. Again, I don't know anything about theory but according to the majority of these comments there is no such thing as an augmented 3rd. The tab is good but you totally ruined it by being up on your high horse, buddy.

ignorance actually is bliss! there is a saying in my country that fits better to the situation, "knowing a little about something is worst than knowing nothing at all"... and thats what happens today. pleople start playing guitar, and though they re still noobs, they think ofthemselves as gods.... i am an noob, and thats a great chorded song.
in addition i want to say the simple Bm7 and Bm9 also fit, instead of augmented. and during solo u can play Bm7 Bm9 G5 and switch to x54030 (its a G, but no name given i guess for that one lets name it Gbri :P )

just cause you can play chords in time doesn't mean you know music. learn how music as a whole works then start talking.

This is years after you posted this, and your rant is adorable and all... But there's no augmented third in those chords. There's no such thing as an augmented third really. Yes you could call B - Dx an augmented 3rd, but it's a sounding 4th. An augmentation of an interval means it was made bigger (C-G becomes C-G#). Those chords literally cannot have augmented thirds because the third of a chord defines it as major or minor. Since you've called the chord minor already (and since they are minor), they MUST be minor and not augmented. The chords are stacked this way:

Bm7 Bm7 add9
D D
D C#
A A
D D
B B
D D

Those numbers refer to intervals above the root, in this case. The root is the name of the chord, so B. The third is 3 notes up from B. In a major B chord, this would be D#, however, this is a minor 7th chord, so the third has to be minor. This means we have to make the interval SMALLER (that's right, the opposite of augmented), which means we go down to D. The fifth of the chord isn't necessary to define the quality for a simple minor 7th. In this case, the 5th is F# and not present. Finally, the 7th must be added. In a minor 7th chord, the interval for the 7th is minor (just like in a dominant/Major-minor 7th chord). The major 7th of B is A#. Go down one half step to make it minor and you get A. Your Bm7 chord is B D F# A. Now if you want to add the 9th, you just go up 9 notes from B. In most rock music, when a 9th is added it will be major. If you add a minor 9 it will be incredibly dissonant, being that a minor 9th is only a half-step from the root note of the chord. A major 9th from B is C# (yes, just one whole step up - it's much easier to approach it that way).

This has been a free theory lesson from a music teacher. Enjoy.
