For anybody new to learning chords, the section in which he plays through the "9ths" versions, the last A9 is a typo of a sort. First of all, the first A9 should have been written as "A9/C#" because the chord has the major third of A as the root note and not the "A" or "1". Should be fixed to keep from confusing newer theory learners but after a few moments, I finally understood HOW it was an A9. Also, the last "A9", if it's correctly drawn on the clefs, then it should be written as "Am9/C" or renamed to "Cmaj7". That stumped me for longer trying to understand HOW in the world it was still an A9 having a minor 3rd in the notation. Just a heads up for anybody else rolling through who wants to stop the video player and understand the chords🤪
