Can you help me by telling me what chord this guy is playing by his fingers?

I think it is some sort of A on the 8/9th fret?

It looks like a bar on the 8th. The thumb over the top on the bottom E string on the 8th fret leads me to believe the chord is built around C. Possibly C maj7. Difficult to tell from the picture though.

What song is it?

I think we have an Amaj and an F#mi7 (F# is the relative minor of A for anyone that cares).

The voicing would be fretted like:

Amaj
7
10
9
7
0
x

F#mi7

7
10
9
7
9
x

The thumb is there purely to mute the E string I think... Ironic really. :p

I worked it out by ear, so that string could be muted as it's only another A anyway.

You could give these two a try also:

Amaj

7
10
9

Ok, maybe he has his guitart not in standard tune then. You can cleary see, his fret with the two dots is fret 7, no fingers anywhere near it. I had a suspicion it was an A of some kind though
