Build a Bridge

Nahko varies where he plays the chords when he does this live. But I'm particular to play the verses as fret
chords so you can get the beat and those single strums going, and the chorus as open chords. Palm muting
parts of this song sounds sweet, too.
So in the verse:

A chord diagramDmDm = 5th fret
A chord diagramG minorGm = 10th fret
A chord diagramA augmentedA = 5th fret
