    I spotted it. It definitely reminded me of Stairway.

    BTW a Am/F is the same as Fmaj7. I think you meant to a say "Fmaj7/A" which is what it is.

    What makes it Am/F to my ears is that the chord immediately preceding it is in fact an Amin, so my ears hear it as a moving bassline rather than a separate chord. The lowest note is F, not A, and that makes it a slash-chord.

    I meant to say exactly what I said.

    Thanks
    That the chord I was referring to, the Am before it - which I thought was a Fmaj7/A. That's why it reminded me of the Fmaj7 in the 'Stairway to Heaven' intro. Must listen to it again.

    A very interesting [G-B/5-E] done here between 6:28-6:33, when changing key of song to E maj!
