Great lesson Ben, The chords in the video are wrong for the riff A7 and A6 instead of Am7 and Am6, also the D is more of a D5 isn't it, as it isn't using or implying the maj 3rd.

the F#/5+ very confusing name for a 1st inversion D no 5th, but maybe that naming is more correct in terms of theory

Not trying to nitpick, just I really liked the sound of the rhythm part and was trying to work out how those chords worked together from a note/theory perspective.

I guess as you mentioned about George's theory knowledge, this would be the wrong lesson to try and dissect in this way!!! lol

do keep in mind George doesn't know theory or scales by his own admition and just plays by ear so trying to understand it theory wise will be difficult

nevermind

Aha, you are right about the Am6, Am7 thing.. I had written the 'm' in the editing software but for some reason I must have deleted it somewhere !?! tongue.gif

The D you referred to is called that because you play the note of F# on the A string right before you hit the 5th/octave on the D and G strings. The F# being the major 3rd. Even though it's played separately, the overall feel is that of D major.

I chose the F#/5+ because of the bass note being F#. F# was the defining key change in my eyes so the chord shape had to reflect that. But having said that, the chord that the guitar plays is indeed the notes that make up D. smile.gif
