Chicago – Call On Me chords

"Call On Me" by Chicago
Chicago VII 1974

For the intro, I strum the first six chords once and then make-up my own kind of rhythm. 
 Also, sliding up the fretboard from Am and A#m a little sounds like the recording.
It would help to play all of the chords using barre chords, and a wah-wah pedal is needed.

Intro:  Am  Bm  Dm    A#m  C#m  Em
Bm    Dm    Am     Bm    C#m  Em   C#m  Em
A#m       A#m  Bm  C#m

For the verses, I play a strumming pattern of:

 w w x w u x u u x d u d    with w(down), u(up), and x(muted)

Verse 1:
C#m BmThe feeling was clear, clear as a blue sky on a sunny day
C#mEverything was you, oo ooo
D C#m Bm'Cause no one made me feel, the way I felt with you, oh oohh
C#m C#m DCall on me 'cause I love you
C#m C#m D6 C#m C#m D A#m A#m Bm C#mYou know I do, you love me too.
For verse 2, the strumming pattern stays the same, but for the first D chord, I play: w u w u w x w x w x (twice) Verse 2:
C#m BmThen came a change, when I said I would soon be leavin' you
C#mNothing else to do, oooh
D C#m BmBut please remember I'll never lose the thought of you
C#m C#m DCall on me 'cause I love you
C#m C#m D6 C#m C#m D A#mYou know I do, you love me too, oo ooo
A#mHoo ooh oh oh hoh
I ad-lib on rhythm for the instrumental. It's difficult to hear the guitar over the brass and percussion anyways. Instrumental 1: A#m Bm C#m Em Bm Dm Am Cm Bm Gmaj7 Bm Cm Dm Same strum pattern as verse 1 Verse 3:
Dm CmYou've got to find someone else to somehow take my place
DmShare his life with you, oo ooo
Eb Dm CmBut if you need a friend, you can always count on me
Dm Dm EbCount on me 'cause I love you,
Dm Dm Eb6 Dm Dm Eb BmYou know I do, you love me too, oo ooo
Instrumental 2: Bm Dm Am Bm Cm Bm Outro:
BmYou can count on me, ooh oh (baby)
G DYou can count on me
(repeat until done)
