Beat Happening - What's Important

This is currently arranged for solo guitar. It's a lot simpler with the lead and rhythm 
separate. Either way it's pretty easy, which is what makes it cool in the first place.

Fmaj7 = x03210 (alternate with x03211 before next note on verses, let's call this one FM7*)

The instrumental section is all on an Am, with your pinky controlling this pattern:

Am, 002213, 002230, Am Am Am (repeat)

The trick is to strum the heavier strings on the first Am, and the lighter strings on 
the rest.

(if you're just doing rhythm, it goes on power chords: Am, DDD. that last D has the 
second finger pulled off, so the chord is actually x555 instead of x577)

Enjoy and improve on it!
