G / | G / | Gsus4 G | G /
Technically, yes.. especially if you are playing it in the open position. This is even more pronounced on the Los Lobos cover version.
1 3 3
2 0 1
3 0 0
4 0 0
5 2 3
6 3 3
If you are barreing at the third fret, you would (at least I do, with my ring finger that is playing the "A" shape of the barre) mute the E on the 2nd string when playing the "C":
And that's the exact rhythm I was talking about for the first bar in the progression, and it is what is repeated at the beginning before the verse starts, at which point it changes to the two-bar progression each time it comes back from the C. Second bar would be:
Gsus4 G | G / | Gsus4 G | G /
Seems like I've been here before...
