And the chorus, what about the chorus?
My Generation has a great chorus, "talking 'bout my generation...", the 
second chord of the sequence of two,that is a kind of riff.
The same with Can´t Explain, when the chorus "can't explain", also the 
second chord of the sequence of two, is repetead at exhaustion.
The chorus "Substitute", in the song,begins  is the first chord of the 
sequence of three...
It's a Townshend mark...
