So i watched a joke video of Devin Townsend ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NongtyxkfY ). When he start singing at 5:00, does anybody know that chords key he uses? Is it pure diatonic, or harmonic minor or what? (Waht song is this by the way?) I really wonder about the part at 5:08. It sounds like he's going from Major To harmonic minor or what? Sorry for not being a theory master, and this is probably a really dumb question, but i really wanna know.

The chord changes goes like this and the chords change when descending (so the first chord is only half a bar - the rest are a whole bar):

B Gb Db Ab Bm Ebm Gm Bm


EDIT: Keep in mind that this is originally played in Open B major tuning

Thanks alot for your reply! Can you help me analyze it? What key is it in, are there a key change etc? By the way, its sick that he does all the soloing in this tunisng! Do you know why?

In the first 4 chords he's simply ascending from B major in fifths, the next 4 chords he's ascending in major thirds from B minor (kind of implying some augmented/wholetone feel)

You can probably dig deeper into it, but I simply can't be bothered, because the stuff Devin writes doesn't always make sense from a traditional point of view.

Devin once said that he uses open tunings because he says they're much easier to navigate in in regards to scales, chords and soloing. A lot of the patterns repeat on each string.
