C if you want to do it in one chord.

If you don't mind using two chords, E to Am works better imo

With one chord:

Am Em F G

Am Em F Ebmin(b5). Stretches the boundaries, sounds nice to my ears!

Am Em F Cmin11

With two chords to finish:

Am Em F Bb Gsus4

Am Em F G9 Dmin9

Am Em F A(maj) Emin7

Hope this gives you a few ideas to work with


Am Em F

Play your progression. Stop. Listen. What do you want to hear there?

Try to find that chord on your guitar. This may take a significant amount of trial and error as you're getting started.

Don't try to "think of" something. Listen to the music in your head, and try to find it on the guitar.

You say you can't think of anything higher than an F save a D? Really? Use your brain! F#, G, G#, A, A#, B, C, C# ... all those chords will feel like they're rising in pitch coming off a barred F. And your really can't think of anything?

i would personally say use a Diminished chord to pull back to the Am , but that's me , i like trying different things.
There's enough bands out there playing correctly ; we don't need another band playing exactly the same as everyone else ; we need people to do things that are weird - King Buzzo

Your dim7 chord options would be rooted on any of F, Ab, B and D. They all work, and they're derived from the tritone sub of E7, the V of i.

Any chord can be higher or lower pitched depending on how you voice it.
