Right now I am transcribing "So Far Away" by Avenged Sevenfold. What I got (In order) was: Em, G, D, C. pretty much that the entire song until we get to the slower part (in the video, it's where we see Jimmy's video of him and the rest of the band)

the slower part ( the arpeggio part) its the same that the solo part that comes later, but in fingerstyle you can say haha! not completely the same but i feel like its really close to the motive of the solo

    S I tried to transcribe yesterday by the beatles and in the original song you have F, E7 A7, Dm, Bb C7, F, Dm G7, Bb F in the verse, and what I got was F, E7, Dm, Bb, C, G, F. Almost there xD But in the song specially in the verse, you have those little chords that are played like 0,002 seconds and you almost dont hear them. They are just there to make some embelishments like A7 and C7 and Bb. But anyway, I got the basic things.

    @phatloots Yes, thats because this one is a C chord:

    -0-
    -1-
    -0-
    -2-
    -3-
    ---

    And the one in the previous video was a Cadd9

    -3-
    -3-
    -0-
    -2-
    -3-
    ---

    They are both C chords but the second has an added major second an octave higher (In the scale of C, the second is D so there it is on the third fret of the B string). I think papa gates also described the second one as the ''rock n roll' C. Point is, both of them are C chord with just different voicing. You can get much more into it in the intermediate section about building chords. Hope it helps, let me know if it wasnt clear enough!
