We're moving into the A chord or what I refer to as 'the 4' - this is because it is the 4 chord to what key our root tonic is (E). These are neat little chord hammer-on/pull-offs with ghost notes on the open root note string, again lots of Albert Lee influence here, Vince Gill used to do those a lot too. Now we move into 'the 5' or B and I talk about our journey up to the higher strings using notes from a pretty standard major scale that everyone uses a lot, hopefully we're using some some variations with our hybrid picking to make this a more unique sound.
