Great lesson. Nothing more frustrating than transcribing a song, getting the basic chord progression right and still wondering why it sounds different from the record.

I can usually spot both the D chord embellishments and C chord hammer-ons pretty easily, as well as a full E chord. For some reason the F chord is a lot trickier. Probably because it can be played as a full F barre chord, the small F or an Fmaj7.
