I’m trying to figure out what the theory is behind Brian using the G note in this rhythm piece. The key is E, so the G is the flatted 3rd. He also uses A chord, the IV, of E, but G is the flatted 7th of A. I would have thought you would use the major scale to construct these things generally, I IV V or I ii IV V, etc., but try to instead substitute G#, the 3rd, and that sounds awful.
Anybody explaining this would be most appreciated.
