I think it must be a typo.

It sounds good.

Not sure what your teacher is trying to get you to do, but the interlude of Dust uses these shapes:

        Amadd9      G/A         F(#4)/A     Fadd6/A     F(#4)/A 

As I suspected it's moving chord shapes around while keeping open strings. Naming the chords you get when doing this is tricky at best.

I just had another thought regarding this subject. When I see something like F/G, it means an F triad with a G Bass note. No its not...... It then becomes a G11. Try this for fun: C, Am, F, and G7. Then play it again and this time play, C, Am, F, and F with a G in the Bass. I love using that as a turn around chord. The G7 wants to resolve but the G11 REALLY wants to resolve. Sometimes I'll use the G augmented or G7 #5 to turn around but that can get to be really typical.
