To me the Am/G sounds a little weird. I checked Swan's recording and it is clearly Am. It is just that the the bass and a guitar playing along with the bass very quickly slide up from the g to the a. So maybe that's what suggested the g (which nonetheless turns into "a" instantly). Anyway, when played alone on a guitar, I'd definitely prefer a plain Am here. Other that that - good job!!

Maguri - thanks for the feedback. I just dug this one out and checked both the my mp3 and the youtube live video I had also used and yeah, it's just an Am. Not sure what I was thinking before. The bass is sort of romping back and forth, but just to an A-bass. I'll fix it (and hopefully not mess up the spacing!)

There is a subtle correction to make in the intro, on the popular 1974 recording. It goes C-Am-C-Am-C-Am-C THEN a half-length Am, then a short C, THEN settling into the G... then same thing before returning to C and Am. Note the "push" on chord change before the beats, too. (The Am could also be a C6......) The slashes indicate when the pitch of the leslie goes up or down.
