Working this oneout to perform soon. What chord does Elton go to at 1:26? It's not quite a C chord, it's a bot different?

He goes from a Dmaj to a C6b5.

On piano:
C - E - Gb - A

On guitar:
With 1st finger, play C on the 5th string at 3rd fret.
With 2nd finger, play Gb on 4th string at 4th fret.
With 3rd finger, bar 1st, 2nd, 3rd string at 5th fret.
