Taps for Maynard chords
Many of you may be familiar with Walter White's Taps (for Maynard).
I am trying to figure out the chords and the notes played by listening, but I am having trouble. Could anyone take a shot at it, and write the name of the chords played, and the notes of it? It would be a really big help to me.
Wow, there's some dense stuff in there - but I can't reists these challenges.

* this is a polychord, Bb triad over Ebm triad - it's arguably a different voicing (and alternative name) for the following chord, D7#5#9. You could also think of it as just about all the notes from the Eb melodic minor scale together (with the possible exception of Ab)!
A very similar chord occurs at 1:17, where I've labelled it Ab13/C - contains the notes C-Gb-Eb-F-Bb, at least.
It works as an altered D7, in that it tends to resolve to Gm - although there's a nice deceptive cadence when it goes to Ebmaj7 (0:36).
Where I've show two timings (eg 0:36-39) that means it sounds like the same chord repeated but maybe in a different voicing.
Most of the chords are ambiguous because of the rich harmonies, and harmonics of the horns sometimes muddy the picture (making the opening Bb chord sound a little like it has Cs in it).
The penultimate chord (1:25) is quite simple, and I've given the voicing as I hear it. It makes a kind of lydian cadence to the final Bb: the C comes down to Bb and the E natural (#4 of the key) goes up to F. (There may be a D in this chord too.)

I tried it but couldn't get the other lines right. JonR's chords were pretty much right on the notes. And thumbs up for the lecture part there JonR.

Jon always amazes me. When I grow up I want to be just like him.

Thing I noticed about this thread was that after such a helpful analysis giving all those chords + explanation, pcarn never even bothered to reply!
Grow up? I'm still waiting to do that...
