We Are the People  Empire of the Sun

the other examples I've seen on here either have chords missing, or they're not quite right,
so i did ones that sounded most correct to my ears.
the Dsus2/B may have an E bass, i'm not sure.
i'm 90% sure there's 2 guitars playing in the recording, but it's mixed in a way
that its' hard to hear.
the Em, i'm sure there's a guitar playing an Am shape 7th fret, but other than
that i can't hear much.
anyway let me know what you think
