Mike good afternoon. I am starting to learn this song. It's a cool little jam. My question is...on the song intro, I don't see over in the sheet music area where the Am chord shape is. Am i missing something?

Thanks,

Dee

Hi Dee! It's more of a riff that's based off of A minor (or A minor 7) - but there's a bit of movement there.

You're alternating between the root note (open A string and also the higher octave A note 7th fret of the D string) and the chord that infers Am7 (5th fret of the D, G, and B string).

Hope this helps! Let me know how it goes!

Mike
