                             What They Do (Intro) - The Roots
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


A classic old school tune by The Roots.  The beautiful jazzy intro in this song is one 
of my favorite things

to play.  Listen to the song to catch the rhythm. I'm pretty sure this is at least 99% accurate.

A few barre chords with legato thrown in to spice things up.  I'm not sure if this is 
how the guitarist plays

it but it sounds pretty close to me.  Some chord notes stay ringing so pay attention!
