What are the 3 chords this guy plays at 3:10 and again at 3:29? They sound like something from a song but I cannot identify them...or the song.<br /> <br /> Many thanks, <br /> <br /> MG<br /> <br />

First, his Strat is tuned down 1/2 step.<br /> <br /> Using the shorthand SxFx to indicate string and fret:<br /> <br /> Sounds like S5F0,S4F5,S3F7; S5F0,S4F4,S3F7; S5F0,S4F2,S3F2.<br /> <br /> Or G5/A; D (2nd inversion); A5. Somewhat reminiscent of the chorus section of "All Right Now."

Second chord is not truly 2nd inversion; that would be A, D, F#, whereas this is A, F#, D. Call it D/A. There, coffee finally kicked in!

For all those that complain about buzz or hum, you can hear it between riffs on this demo on a new amp in the store. It is what it is.

Thanks for all this...at 6:21 he starts from a G position for the first chord, could that be the same as the other two spots?<br /> <br /> MG<br />

That chord combo is reminiscent of the turnaround going into the verses of AC/DC's tune Heatseeker.

At 6:21, it sounds like A5; G5; D; A5 played in open position. Similar, but not quite the same.
