chord right here. And if you look at the melody we’re still reading in E so you have four

then this is all just chromatic. So you got two natural two one seven natural seven six
and so on. Just going down chromatically. So you got that lick. It starts right here

line but it’s cool just to take that chord. Remember the first three bars were right in
the key of E major and we just through a random key out of the key of E major and then went
right back in it with this five seven. And you can hear how the five seven chord, remember,
leads right back into one. You can hear it wants to go. You can really hear that tension.

of the first A section.
