Confusion and misunderstanding.
Inspired by the old call and response spirituals but applied to a modern call centre where the caller gets a menu with 24 options and chooses the wrong one and gets the wrong response and the conversation becomes more and more bizarre while the music chugs along in the background while the caller is on hold ... (any of this sound familiar?)
The basic theme emerged from messing about with different chord shapes in the first position on the guitar and using an open tuning. Add a fast tempo and away we go.
The piece was written on a guitar tuned to open G.
In open G tuning the strings are tuned to the notes DGDGBD, from the sixth to the first string, to form the chord of G major.
Open tuning is an attractive alternative to standard tuning for writing music. It is handy for writing folk jigs and reels when the emphasis is on the melody and there are only a couple of chords involved. It can be used to write music for the slide guitar. And it stops you getting into a rut using the same old fingering to play the same old chords.
Antiphony is the fancy term for singing in a call and response fashion.
Putting these chords through a chord analyser is an interesting exercise but basically they are all variants of the key chord G.
