Hello, going to play Dammit this winter in my school.
But I need a bit of help with the intro riff

|---------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------0-0-2-------0-0-2-------0-0-2-------2-2-0--------|
|--3-3---------------------0-0--------------------------------|
|--------------3-3---------------------1-1--------------------|

This is how you play it in standard tuning.

I now use the capo on the fifth fret and I play the chords:

C - G - Am - F


|---------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------0-0-2-------0-0-2-------?-?-?-------2-2-0--------|
|--3-3---------------------?-?--------------------------------|
|--------------3-3---------------------1-1--------------------|

I will play the chord and my friend will fill in with this riff sometimes but how is it supposed to be played when I play the chords C -G - Am - F?

Thanks!

Your friend should play it like it was made. You can't just change notes in a song!

Dude, if you're playing the exact same chords in the original, but with a capo on 5th fret, all your friend needs to do is play the riff normally with a capo on the 5th fret to stay in tune o.O

I'm not playing the same chord, I changed the D to a AM.

Original:

C - G - D - F

My version

C - D - Am - F

How can I change the riff so it fits good togheter with my chords.

if he's got a capo on the fifth fret too, he just has to play exactly the same...

|---------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------0-0-2-------0-0-2-------0-0-2-------2-2-0--------|
|--3-3---------------------0-0--------------------------------|
|--------------3-3---------------------1-1--------------------|

in case he's not using the capo ( and you are) and playing standard this would be the riff..(mind you, the notes below are not the same as above)


e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------0-0-2--------0-0-2-------0-0-2----------2-2--0------|
D|---3-3--------------------------0-0--------------------------------|
A|-------------------3-3------------------------1--1-----------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

and the chords for him: F C Dm Bb (remember, by using a capo on the fifth fret and chording the C G Am F you actually playing F C Dm Bb

That doesn't make any sense man. You can change the key by putting a capo on it, but you can't change whether a chord is minor or major. Cause all major keys have the same major minor chord ratio. He should play the same notes just make sure youll have the capo the same frets.

I'm pretty sure that the original chords are C G Am F. There's no D chord in this song. Just play it with both guitars having the capo on the 5th fret if you need to change the key.
