Hi. Peter from the Netherlands here. I've just signed in and have a question.

Many words are written and said about the two chords Dewey Bunnel uses on A horse with no name. But clearly Gerry Beckley is playing completely different chords as seen on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SeY99CtYPU and on this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocLCLMZO6dc

These chords make the whole sound of this song much deeper and interesting. Any idea which ones the are?

In the seventies I was cruising along the French Riviera where I played and sang in several restaurants. These days we only had small casette recorders to find out how to play songs and with two other guitar playing friends we tried to find out which chords all band members used.

Not successfully...

Cheers Peter
