Guitar - General/Slash Chords



I purchased the sheet music for Linkin Park's Papercut and I am having trouble interpreting the slash chords that are used in the song.  I was wondering if you would be so kind as to tell me what strings I would hold down and on what fret for each of these chords.  I have included the slash chords below.

D5/Bb, D5/A, D5/Eb, D5/F, Dsus/Bb, Dsus/A, Dsus/Eb, Dsus/F

I greatly any help you can give me on this issue.

Thank you very much,

Jesse Best

Hi Jesse,
Thanks for your question.
I thought that the easiest way to explain might be to put together a little video tutorial type thing.  So I have, and it's on my YouTube channel here...
Hopefully this will point you in the right direction.

Since joining AllExperts I have been getting rated with 9's and 10's from most of the people I've answered questions from, so I guess that I must be doing something right. Not all that many people can be wrong. Questions about theory, technique, equipment, players, history, etc. welcome - just about anything in fact. The only things I prefer not to answer are requests for transcriptions, or equipment assessments/valuations.
