So i just starting transcribing this song:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SZ3YdEkg48Y

The first chord is a C minor, then the next chord is a Bbsus4, then the last chord before it loops, I can't tell if it's an Eb major first inversion or if there is no third. Is there a third in there?
I'm talking about the first part, where C lo Green sings "do whatever you like" not the part where francine comes in.

The bassline sounds like it moves down for the last chord. It could go from a Bb to a G, making it a first inversion. That could leave a common tone, F down to another G and D to Eb. If that isn't the actual chord, it should sound alright.

Upon further listening:

The first chord is Ab maj, second is Gm, last is Cm7 walking down to Cm9 (no third).

I don't hear it that way at all.

Abmaj7 - Gm7 - Fm7 - Gm7 - Cm7

Basic minor blues in C. Feel free to add colour tones to the chords. Alter the G chord the second time round to a 7#5 to make the resolve stronger. Hendrix style altered chord will also work well.

Well that Ab fooled me for a bit because of a lower register line that skips around, but when I was at the keyboard getting the chords later I found that the C was definitely out of place as the root.

The last chord you're hearing sounds funny because it's a Cm that with Eb in the highest voice, and then that Eb walks down to D.

Where are those chords in terms of the bars? I can't hear it that way.

Ab is beat 1
Gm is on the "and" of beat 2.
Fm is beat 3
Gm (this time make it dominant) on the "and" of beat 4
Cm on beat 2 in the new (2nd) bar
Bass line walks up in eighth notes from the "and" of beat 3 onwards.

Just a rough transcription by ear.... But do whatever you like, whatever you like...
