How To Play

Basically a simple 3 chord song with alternating bass notes.
 
Am  =  x02210   Am/G = 302210
Em  =  xx2000   Em/D = xx0000
Dm  =  xx0231   Dm/C = x30231
 
PLEASE NOTE:
I chose not to indicate them as such, but strictly speaking, on the slash
chords adding the alternative bass notes makes them minor sevenths chords.
