Song analysis of Maroon 5, This love help please!
May 26, 2017 08:38AM
I am studying this song and I wanted to ask if someone can help me work out the tonality and some other details. Harmonically, in the original studio recording, this is what I hear for the verse of the song:

G7/B, Cm, Fm7, Ddim

So obviously Cminor but when I listen to the acoustic version on you tube I can't help feeling like the first chord is Bm6 not G7/B and it looks like the fingering is for that chord too.



Is my chord analysis right? Is this a weird chord progression that it starts on an inverted V chord? I have never seen this in any other song. Also, if the first chord is Bm6, isn't that even more odd?

thanks for any help

Perhaps you could try to do it by means of splitting the link like you did with the you tube word earlier; greetings.

It is exactly as you say. It starts on a V chord, 1st inversion, and yes that's unusual, and well that's the special thing about that song. It's a fantastic start to a song!

thanks but isn't it silly using cheats like this, can't they fix that?
