Our song starts off with a two bar progression that continues through our entire intro, and is played during both verses. We will be emulating the piano part here by playing some pedaling high notes over a moving bass line and chords on the guitar. Here are some key points to help you through it:

1. The main chord progression is F, Dmi7, Bbsus2, and F.

2. During the intro, you will play the progression four times and during both verses eight times.

3. The pedaling notes are C and F on the B and E strings, with the bass movement happening underneath from F to D to Bb and back to F. This creates the piano affect, while also playing the guitar chords along with it.

4. Every other chord is played anticipated on the & of 2. This happens when you play the Dmi7, and when you return back to the F.
