Hey Guys,

I've been struggling to identify a chord in a youtube video for a few weeks. The video is a cover of Ray Lamontagne's "You are the best thing". The guitarist opens with the intro lick of 5 individual notes and then goes into what I believe is an A#maj to the unknown chord, and then into a Gmaj and onto the rest of the song. The unknown chord is the second chord he plays.

Hopefully this will be an easy one for you guys. I've been scratching my head over this one for a while. I've tried all finger combinations that I could see being what he plays in the video, nothing has that bright ring he is getting. I can get a similar sound with other chords, so I don't think it has to due with tuning (standard). Perhaps he is muting some of the strings?
