Damn, completely spot on man, thanks! Could you take a look at 2:20isjh, there a chorus of some sort with diferent chords. Thanks!

At that point (2:20 - 2:40) I am hearing
F# A E A ..... F# A E F# A then back to what ayreon77 has ... Try that ...

Yeah, E G# C#m A is correct (just make that Ab a G# - the key is E major and you want to use sharps, not flats, but whatever).

Kind of strange how they use the second inversion for the tonic chord (E with B in bass). It kind of makes B sound like the key every time the progression starts, not E, even though how it continues clearly suggests E major as the tonic.


The section that starts at 2:22 is F#-A-E-A F#-A-E-F#-A.


If you want to figure out the chords for a song, I would suggest listening to the bass. It usually plays the roots. If it doesn't play the roots, it is usually playing the third or fifth of the chord. Also, learning about chord functions and keys wouldn't hurt.
