Overview
Here's a great song for using triads for rhythm playing. The triads are:

Verse:
Gm - Dm - Gm - F - Eb - Fsus4 - Gsus4

Prechorus:
Eb - Fsus4 - Gsus4

The actual chords for these parts is determined by the bass note and the triad. Combining these parts give us these chords:

Verse:
Gm - F6 - Ebmaj7 - Dm7 - Cm7 - Fsus4 - Gsus4

Prechorus:
Cm7 - Fsus4 - Gsus4

The Chorus chords are:
C - Bb | Eb - F | F G |

I annotate lessons that talk more in depth about how these work, but this is how you play "Roxanne"!
