Letters immediately after a slash (/) are a bass notes.
So the ?C2 /C /B D/A? is a C2 chord then a C bass, B bass,
then D chord with an A as the bass note. There were a lot of
slashes to keep track of; let me know if I made any mistakes.
It's hard to hear exactly what notes are in the chords,
but this sounds close.
