Sounds like CMaj7 -> G -> Am7 (w/ E on top).

Try not playing the high E string for the 2nd & 3rd chords.

Could also probably play an Em7 inversion with D on the top for the 2nd chord as JG plays an Em arpeggio, however, a G chord on the D/G/B strings using the open E chord shape will also have the D on top and it sounds essentially the same and is much easier to play!

Cmaj7 > G > Fmaj7 is my take

You can kinda see his hands at approx 2min10sec of this vid (where they repeat the intro):

Ah yes - I completely spaced on the Fmaj7. Pretty sure that's what I play using an inversion w/ E on top.

I am. This thread will hopefully be very helpful when I read through it.
