ok so a friend of mine asked me to help write the guitar part to a song they wrote, but nothing i play seems to go good with it, can anybody help me figure out a basic jumping off point for it or something

here is the song right now with just her singing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NU74e59uzb4
Figure out the melody on the guitar. If you know the notes, it's a matter of chosing the harmony that fits them.
Maybe some fingerpicking?

Try- Am, Dm, Fsus2, Em:|

Then maybe go to Am, Em, F, E:|

Then for the last few bars maybe something like D, E, Am.


It'd be way easier to find the key, and go from there, though.

Edit: I played that progress above over it with a capo on the first fret. Sounded..passable.
