Note that the final chord could be easily fingered with the open first and second strings.  This open fingering is the same one Ted used for the sixth chord in Somewhere Over the Rainbow.  Since Ted wrote this excerpt in staff notation, there's no knowing which fingering he had in mind.  (He used both.)

Also, notice that had Ted put a D6/9 chord after the first four chords, he could have cadenced in the key of D rather than A.

There's a beautiful ambiguity to sliding parallel maj7, maj9, etc. chords around.  Here Ted has used outer voice contrary motion to make an even more beautiful passage.
