The tune is in 6. Jimmy calls the chords Bb7#9, Bb/B, then Abm6(#5). He's using the same shapes and changing the bass notes according to the video.

There's a band in VA called the Nicholson Brothers that are playing this tune. The guitar player, Brian Mesko, took a few weeks and learned the head. It's a monster. You can see them doing it here:

I use those blank neck charts when I teach lessons. They make it really easy to write out a quick scale or chord for a song we're working on. I haven't been teaching many lessons this year but maybe I ...
