*The symphony plays both sets of notes for a Gm and Cm and Cm7 at the same time, sort of a
polychord. You can play either and it will sound good.

The backup chords have a real dark Wagnerian vibe and are really fun to play. So I'll
tab them out. There are some additions to the above basic chords. When you play them,emphasis
the low end.
