    I was listening (and trying to play) to my new favorite performance of Derek Trucks the live version from 2000(3× better than the studio version imo). I know it says Dm but to my ears and guitar, it starts Am then F#m then Dm.

    Is this correct and if so why does this work and sound so good? o_O

    I'm not that well educated in theory stuff. I know they're the 5 & 3 of DMaj....:confused:

    What song are you trying to learn?

    Edit: I found it on his first record, never mind. Keep in mind that his influences include blues, jazz and East Indian music. He doesn’t always follow standard western theory.

    This is the one I was working on. It's a very intriguing tune to me.
