Song is supposedly in F major.
This isnt rocket science. Very classical stuff but my theory knowledge is primitive at best. Maybe someone can help me understand why I like this sound so much.
The part in question is the classical sounding interlude in the middle of the song. Its mainly two harmonized guitars and a bass but if you listen to the main guitar (or guitar 1 on the tablature i will provide) it is picking argpeggios in this order
A minor, to a quick G major first inversion (outside of key), to a quick F dominant, then to a tasty sounding Bb MINOR arpeggio, then works its way back to A minor
The key of F major has a Bb major for its 4 chord, and a Gminor for its 2 chord
Obviously, you pick whatever sounds good for your song. That Trumps any theory recipe. But can someone explain in theory terms what is going on here? My ear loves this switch
Are they utilizing some kind of mode here very briefly or how would you as a composer explain what happens here.
I know it is common in classical music to change the minor 5 to a major in certain progressions and i love that sound as well. I havent looked at many peices that change the 2 and the 4, however.
Here is tablature if you want to glance at the acoustic section
