Before I'm sent to the Tab forum, I feel like this belongs here. I'm not looking for this to get tabbed, I'm doing that myself, but I can't for the life of me figure out that first opening chord! It's more theory in my opinion...

I think it's based off of an E major, but every way I play it just doesn't sound exact. It looks like he's playing something around the 6th/7th fret area.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
Thank you

E6?

Low to high:
0 7 6 6 0 0

It's a little hard to hear because another instrument is coming in on that chord, but I think the b string is open, which makes sense since that's your 5th.

Thanks guys, that sounds great! (076600)

I thought I heard that Ab on the E string too fanapathy, but I think (076600) sounds better. Thanks for the input!!

Yes that note is definitely there so I was surprised others ignored it. Debated whether he played in on 9 on B but then there's a B as well so that was the only option. It's an E6 regardless
