Hi TB, I hope this is the right part of the forum to ask this question, so here we go: I'm learning Roy Orbison's "You got it" on guitar atm and because my ears are pretty bad I rely on chord sheets and youtube-videos to learn songs. From these the changes are (scale degrees in A major key): The Verse: A G D (I ? IV) The Pre-Chorus: A F#m C#m E (I vi iii V) The Chorus: A C#7 F#m D (I III7 vi IV) So, I figured out that C#7 in the chorus is/would be the V7 in F#m, the minor parallel to A major. That I can understand, but what's the G major chord in the verse doing in a A major key? Now, if we looked at the verse in D major it would go V IV I. So, theoretically speaking, is the verse in a different key or is there some sneaky way to get a G major chord in a A major key? Pretty sure I'm overcomplicating this, but I like figuring out the theory in chord progressions to learn what progressions sound like regardless of key. Thanky you very much for your help!
