How were the backing chord progression and lead part put together? I am sure that it is quite simple, I just do not know how. I was transcribing this today and this thought came to my head.

if i wanna fart into a mic, run it thru delay and an auto tuner set to the key of E and set it to a drum beat i can and its music.

Chords were played and lead guitarist played notes in key

The whole thing is based on the key of C Major I believe. I'm not too sure what you mean though with your question... Do you mean how the timing was put together?

On the first line you have tabbed there the second guitar appears to be doing a C major arpeggio with the exception of the D being played at the 22nd fret on the e string, which suggests that it is a Cadd9 arpeggio. The chord that the first guitar is playing is comprised of C, G and D, which is a Csus2 (since it is missing E). Regardless of whether you refer to the "chord" being played as Cadd9 (the third being implied through the melody) or Csus2, it "falls" to a C in the second half of the first line.

On the second line the second guitar appears to play a Cmaj7/E arpeggio. I can only wager a guess, but with E as the root it may suggest a bassline moving into the next chord. The rhythm guitar repeats the Csus2 -> C change as mentioned above.

In the third line the rhythm guitar plays a Am -> Asus2. The lead guitar performs an Am arpeggio. In the fourth line the rhythm guitar repeats the Am -> Asus2 change while the lead guitar plays another Cmaj7 arpeggio similar to that played in line two.

The rhythm guitar plays an F chord on the fifth line, while the lead guitar outlines the F chord with an arpeggio. Similarly, in the sixth line the rhythm guitar plays a G chord while the lead guitar sweeps a G arpeggio.

The seventh line is, once again, an Am chord with an Am arpeggio being played by the lead. The eighth and final line you have tabbed appears to have the rhythm guitar playing D5/A while the lead part does a G7 arpeggio (the G7 chord contains the F on the 13th fret of the e string).

So, with the exception of the eighth line (which is semi confusing because the rhythm guitar is playing a different chord) it seems like you have a very simple, common chord progression. In it's simplest form:

C C Am Am F G Am G

It would make sense for this progression to repeat, with G being the V and C being the I the G7 -> C would create a perfect cadence. The C -> Am chord change is very common as C contains C, E and G while Am contains A, C and E. In this change the only note that must change is the G to an A. Then, when you change from Am (A, C and E) to F (F, A and C) only one note changes again - the E to an F. These are the types of changes that sound "good" because only one note has to change for the chord to sound different.

TL;DR: I realize I wrote a lot and that you probably already knew most of what I said. Perhaps I didn't even answer your question properly. It appears that the lead guitar is simply playing arpeggios of the rhythm guitar's chords.

Thank you for answering my question. I thought that was what was happening, just not for certain.
Are You a PROG-HEAD? I am.
