    I found this fascinating. While not a true jazz song (not really any swing), it uses a great set of jazz chords. I love the whole “What Makes This Song Great” series Rick Beato does.

    I play a customized Godin 5th Avenue, Córdoba GK Studio, and a Hamer Korina. I also play a Kala uBass on occasion

    Andy Summers is some sort of genius at making these kinds of fusiony ideas work in pop songs.

    Sting performed this with Zappa in '88 coming off of Stolen Moments. It's got a bit of swing to it:

    That second chord (Fsus/A = A, F , Bb, C, F) caught me by surprise. I've always assumed it was a rootless, 5th fret D7#9 with an A in the bass. Listened carefully and there is the Bb and there is no F#!
