Bourton on the Water 2016

Was looking at some photos of a trip to the Cotswold village of Bourton on the Water and felt inspired.

Funny, this made me think of outer space for some reason.  (The melody would totally fit in on a Super Mario Galaxy soundtrack.)  Either way, loved the restrained pace and dynamic.  This is a really soothing track!

Such a beautiful chord progression, could you share you approach to writing such boc-like nondiatonic chords/melodies? You are a master at this, and I'm struggling with coming up with such nondiatonic dreamy goodness. Maybe there is some theory/approach to this, or is it the result of intuition/experimentation?

Maybe you could share the chords of this track? Tried to pick them up by ear, but to no success. Would love to try them on a shoegazey guitar. Thats a lot I'm asking, so I'm totally fine if you could not though! Cheers!

I honestly couldn't tell you what the chords were, I tend to work by ear. If it helps I start with a base note and work from there. I pretty quickly get a feel for how it should progress. Sorry, no real method there, more intuition I've built up over the years.

Thank you very much for the answer! As is usually the case, it's not a secret technique, but experience smile
