[mod edit ... question about Ziggy Stardust]

In the video Justin plays Am in the verse, in the book it says A. When I first tried to transcribe it myself I landed on Am but I'm not sure, seems like both works. Are they playing A5 on the record? Although I think the last sung note in the bar usually is C which would mean the chord ought to be Am. But I've been to a guitar study group and there the teacher said A.

I'm confused!!!

@ pjotr

The verse is in the key of G and uses six of the seven chords from the harmonised G Major scale :
G, Am, Bm. C, D, Em, F#dim

So the A in the book is a typo. It should be Am.

The book shows the chorus as A5, G5, F5 ... the 'implied' chords are Am, G Major, F Major.
The key of the song has switched from G to A minor at this point.
