Jen, I actually use F# (the 7th is, for some reason, harder for me). It's just an E chord barred up 2 frets.)

Good suggestion, Amos. I slide several chords up a fret (B7, D7, A7) without bothering to use a barre.

FWIW, Rick, I've tried playing it your way and mine, and I think it sounds better with the F# (even if Iris uses G7). (Initially, I did it with a B7, and that sorta works, too, but I still like the F#.)

Anyway, Jen, you've got several suggestions. Just do whatever works for you.
