    Ab would be the most emotional note if it was indeed unexpected. Good video but apparently he's never heard the Beatles or the iv or bVI wouldn't be unexpected :)

    Good video, again. IMHO the B is still the most emotional note because generates the most tension in the key of C and cries out to be resolved. Literally cries out :) Plus it's still in key. YMMV of course, and, I know HMV (his mileage varies) because he is making a point to help sell his chord course. Nothing wrong with that either.

    I would have thought the 3rd major and minor but but he makes a good case for the aug 5.

    How about the quarter step between Eb and E... with a little sugar?

    Since we are in C, should it be called Ab or G#? Either way, in notation it's not going to be in the key sig, it will be an accidental. I'm inclin ed to call it G# a sharp 5. But if you wanted to notate Dm7b5 you would probably go with D F Ab C.

    The most emotional note is the one your wife leaves when she walks out.
