Curious as to what the last 4 chords from 0:21-0:24 are? It seems to me that the chords are ascending chromatically until it resolves to the last chord, which I think is C!

Thanks

Don't think so, but it's good to see someone making an effort.

- correction; they all have the added 2nd but for the final C chord which is plain major.

Indeed they do. On closer inspection I've realised that it sounds more accurate with the 2nd added. It isn't often you'd come across an ascending chord movement with 4 major chords, each a tone apart!
