Anyone know the walkdown chords before the final chorus? There are 8 chords in succession. I'm thinking about the 6/16/82 Music Mountain version in particular.

OK, very quick and dirty vid, excuse the sloppiness of phrasing, just wanted to show the chords,

A couple notes:
some use an Emin instead of the G\B (and really the inside of the G\B is just an Emin7 anyway) I use the G/B. YMMV

Jerry Barres the straight G chord at the 3rd fret I (think) but I just played it open since I used the acoustic to demo.

the key "cool chord" of the progession is the D/F# in between the G and the Bb/F

Heres the progression in the vid:
C > G/B > Bb > Amin > G > D/F# > Bb/F > F
