Roots – Wake Up Everybody chords

Hello, this is by no means perfect. It is just to give an idea of what the progression 
should sound like.  This song isn't easy for the reason that it uses ALL bar chords, but 
it is great for learning your 7th chord shapes. Tabs are also written out at the bottom.
