Is he even plugged into a small practice amp or is that just the natural sound of the guitar unplugged. If its just unplugged that is amazing tone. Did his guitar just sound that loud unplugged?

That has to be a practice amp for sure. I've seen this a few times, actually I recorded it onto my ipod at one time, "Life may be, no wait, Gone are the days..." priceless. RIP big guy.

Classic how he looks up at Justin and smiles after whomever came in the room. Grate Vid I wish it was longer. I want to hear that solo.

Here is another video recorded by Justin, thought it to be appropriate to place in this topic for everyone that hasn't seen it too:

wonder if any of y'all noticed this - I posted in one of the other 27 or so threads w/ this vid. ;-) Thought it's worth noting again as it's not part of the 'standard' chord progression.

--life...sweeter for this 

--Fm----------Ab+-----Ab 

e--4-----------4-------4--- 
b--6-----------5-------4--- 
g--5-----------5-------5--- 
d--6-----------6-------6--- 
a-------------------------- 
E-------------------------- 


I'd never noticed the Ab+ chord. (if that's what it's called - might be Ab+5 as it's adding the #5th) 

Pretty cool. Similar to the Dear Prudence progression, less the 7th chord

Actually, "Ab+5" would mean the same thing as Ab+. The raised 5 is what gives a chord an Augmented quality. 

And I think you are correct-...ish. I kind of reverse-engineered how I play it (in the 1st-fr position) and found that on the last beat of the Fm measure I do drop the root(but keep an F on top), which creates (I believe?)an Fm/Maj7 chord #7-E,3-Ab,5-C,1-F; which, if you remove the root entirely and have the maj7 on top, could also be called an Ab+ 1-Ab,3-C,#5-E. I think Fmin/Maj7 might be the more conventional way of seeing it. werxferme!
