    Andy Timmons intro

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04ufLAs_y3c - First chord is Adim, followed by Am7b5, followed by a very dreamy sounding ???, where I played a Gsus2. What's that chord?

    Steve Lukather

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0s9n6aYsnY - What exactly does he do around 1:10? He seems to hint an E maj sound before he does it. What's the idea behind it? Sounds something like:
    Why is the IV chord harder to hear than the V?

    A good musician should know at any given moment what the chord number of the song is? Below, I think the 0:47 mark is a good example of how the IV chord should sound, in the context of a song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaRdJ5RjOPI Also, the chorus of 'Brown Eyed Girl'

    'A Word in Spanish' - Elt

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2KZDPuQwrE - At 0:22; just confirming it's a G/B? tab said different.

    'Days' - Bowie

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWDasBptBsY - At 2:07, is it an F or Bb/F?

    Jurassic Park

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msimASAXoys - At 1:57, it modulates down a major third. Thought it was unusual. Kind like as if because the same melody was play so often, someone decided to just move it, so it wouldn't sound repetative.


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrLk4vdY28Q - In this (0:44), I found it hard to hear G-E movement. It seemed as if the base note could barely be heard, as well as the fact the vocal (going from D to E) gives a misleading impression the chord is going somewhere else. Would anyone else find this hard?

    Thank you

    Just a quickie on this one.
    As the vocal goes from D to E ("baffled king com-posing..."), the chord goes from G to E, but the bass on the E chord is G#. As well as harmonising the melody in a more interesting way than copying the root, that allows the bass to continue up to the root of the following Am.

    Might come back later on the others.
