    I tried a "now analysing" type thread a million years ago and it didn't go very far, but nevertheless it would be good to try again and see if more people are up for it.

    I think what trips up those of used to playing 4/4 in 99% of the time is that here we are looking for six notes on the pulse, but it's not sextuplets (2 groups of 3) but 3 groups of 2 instead. A lot...

    My take is:

    - The parent key looks like D major. But, the progression indeed seems to rest on A.

    - The major chord on the flat 7 note (G here, referring to A as "home") is very common in rock...

    For this kind of run I "naturally" found myself using only hammers for a long time (but then I'm a bad player) - it allows you to be a bit lazy in moving all fingers to the new string..

    But, it...

    I guess the pattern, back down the same shape, would be:

    e--- 13 12 10
    b--- 13 10 13 12 10

    etc.. and so on.

    I bet your fingers want to start 13 10 12 on the "b" string :eek:

    I'm sure this is just a coincidence of permutations of notes - it's going to happen now and again . .

    If you've got to fit a tune within an octave having different key notes would be useful as it would be otherwise even more limiting than it is already.

    In the 1st bar all but one of the chromatic notes is on the weak 2 & 4 1/16 of the beat and it sounds like the classic "filling in the gaps" type licks that even dedicated "stuck in the box" pent...

    In standard and then capo, no detuning down - I think this was partly to fit things into Morrisey's vocal range, but it anyway contributes to the sound.

    As "high-strung" mentioned Johnny Marr was tuning up a tone quite a lot in the early days. But, as he found out, you're going to break a lot of strings like that so it's a lot easier to use a capo !!...

    Indeed - good point, its not a rule it's a usage thing. You were kind enough to not point out that 15 is in fact divisible by 3 as well :)

    Good answer Jed.. but one typo as there are normally only two (triplet) beats in 6/8 (compound time). Bringing that in kind of screws up the time signature definition, but simple time and compound...

    The added flat corresponds to the next key note round the circle. So for F you are adding Bb, for Bb adding Eb and so on.
