this is what I find online:

Code:
[FONT=Verdana]Capo 3rd Fret

Am-G-F# (partial chords root plus 3rd fret B string on G and F#)

Verse 1:
Am         G  F#         G    F# Em
What child is this, who, laid to rest
Am         G  F#         G    F# Em
On Mary's lap, is sleeping?
Am         G  F#         G    F# Em
Whom angels greet with voices sweet, 
Am                   E                   Am
While shepherds watch are keeping? 

Chorus1:
C             G          Em
This, this is Christ the King, 
Am       G     F#        G F#   Em
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing: 
Am     F#       G     F#  Em
Haste, haste to bring him praise, 
Am            E      Am            Am-E-Am
The Babe, the Son of Mary[/FONT]

i dont really understand what they are trying to say when they say "partial chords root plus 3rd fret B string on G and F#"

are they talking about with the capo on, then the 3rd? so the 6th fret?

and by "partial chord" do they mean ONLY the root + adding only one more tone on the B string at the 3rd/6th fret? so just 2 strings are pressed, on a 6-string guitar, or does it mean they are picked?

and then it says its 'on both G & F#' chords, so is that the same extra tone added at the same spot for both different chords?

i dont really get it
