hmm im changing my answer to the chord i last answered to an Eb half dim 7. why i put the add #4 i dont know. i guess its bc a tritone is either a #4 or a b5. it doesnt matter i messed up. i also just realized i posted the same type of chord. who is a dumbass? rushing through this stuff can be bad.

dude, you were right the first time lol........ it can't be half dim. because it has the natural 3rd. lol (in regards to the chord that redwing posted that you named, yours on the other hand, well, yeah that's a G-7b5, but you were fine on the other chord)

tsk tsk.... second guessing yourself :no: :p:

hmm that sounds interesting. you gotta use the thumb to get the 10 on the low E. interesting sound... interesting confusion in the naming...:( ok i'm assuming the root is D, seeing as though it seems to be it's strongest tones... if not, i'm deaf... so we have a D at the root on the E string (1), an Ab on the A string (b5), another D (1), an F on the G string (b3), a G#/Ab on the B string (b5), and finishing with a D# (#1)... 1, b5, 1, b3, b5, #1? wow, wasnt expecting the #1.... what to do? how bout making it a b2... so we have D dim add b9? i cant tell if it's a full or half dim chord, cause there is no seventh... so then i cant really call it a dim chord, can i? ...... shadow?!?!?!


wait!!! would it just be a Db5 add b9?

errrr......

the full and half diminished only apply when there is a 7th. you can have a diminished triad. the name you gave me is what i was looking for.

as for yours... Emin susp b2?

It would be addb9, not sus as there is the 3rd (g) in there, however there is no b9 (F) only F#, also there theres the b6 (c) and b7 (d) in there. My best guess would be Emin13add9

btw, this chord is used in floods by pantera. eeerrrrrr.... here's a wild guess.... Db susp2 (#2/#6)? reasoning: i'm assuming that Db is the root... there is no third, thus the susp, and it's susp 2 because of the 2... there's an extra #6 and an #2 in there, they are adds... sooo.... Db susp (#2/#6)....

back to the chord i posted earlier. i wanted CM9(#11)/E. the notes are (bottom to top) E,C,F#,B,D,G. i dont know about the names you posted. they dont seem like the simplest way for the answer. oh well. everyone sees these things differently.

07-01-2003, 07:32 PM
the F#dim add6/E was what i was looking for, but Am6 add#4/E wouldve been good too.

i took this hoe from my sisters singing book (i had to change it slightly to make it possible to play on guitar, the notes are not lined up exactly the same as the piano part but still the same chord name). its from the song Dance:10; Looks: 3 of the musical A Chorus Line. the key is Bbm so i want it named correctly for that key. by the way, that is such a great and funny song.

Bb as the root (1), Eb on the a string (4), Gb on the d string (b6), C on the g string (2), and F on the b string (5).... 1-4-b6-2-5... no third, making it susp.... now i'm assuming it's a susp 4... Bb susp4 add b6/9...? maybe?

redwing its an Ab on the low E string not a Bb. that will make things much clearer.

i guess that makes it a Bbmin7... and are there REALLY three adds there? here's a new random guess... Bb b6min7 add4/9? nope, prolly not.

07-02-2003, 12:27 PM
redwing its an Ab not a Bb. there is not Bb in the chord i posted. the key is just Bbm. i only said that so people wouldnt post with a sharp name. this is not the tonic chord for Bbm. sorry about the confusion.

now this is where i need practice deciding what is the root note of the chord.... it COULD be Eb, obviously... but i'm also seeing two "G"'s in there, so they obviously have a factor in the chord tones.... if it IS Eb, then the name would be Eb aug add6... or i think the aug can be a +.... so Eb+ add6... but if the root is G, then it's a Gmaj7 add4... help me out here on the root shadow.:(


redwing:confused:

shadowhunter486
07-03-2003, 10:29 AM
lets look at all the notes. from bottom to top we have:

Eb, G, C, G, B, Eb

so if you chose Eb as the root then the answer would be Eb+ add6. just like you posted. if we named the Eb D# then we would have G+ add4/D#. not what you posted. where did you get the M7 when using G as the root. theres no F#. so either of the names i posted would have been acceptable. your turn to post redwing.

wait a second. a 2nd and a 9th are the same note. i think what you meant was F7 #9/#11. and for your first naming. all you need to write is F7. when you put the b7 it makes people think you are writing an Fb chord. which nobody would ever do without knowing the key because an Fb is the same as E. so, just to run through this quickly. when its a major chord with a b7 you write something like E7. if it has a major 7, then you would write EM7. if its a minor chord with a b7 then its simply Em7. if its a minor chord with a major 7 (these are really rare), then its EmM7. ok enough of that. the other name i wouldve accepted for my chord would have been B7b5 add6/F. i like that one better actually. its a much simpler name. ok now to your chord.

its a CM7/E.
but what i think you were going for was an Em addb13. i dont know. the correct name is CM7/E, but i wouldnt think you would post something easy like that which is why i gave the other name. now for me to post a chord.

have a troubliong question on my mind...

i am having trouble figuring out the root.... it could be assumed it's A, by the first note obviously... but with all those sharps and flats, i thought maybe it came from B-maj... B C# D# E F# G# A#....but for some of those notes, there are weird things like a 5, b5, 7, b7... how would you go about naming that? like something insane such as Bmaj7min5min7 add2? that looks sooooo wrong.... i dont know where to go, cause obviously you'll have this issue with any scale you use to name it.

ok enough of your speculation. i will give you the answer. the notes bottom to top are A, C#, F#, Bb, Eb, G. there is not even a B in the chord, so, i dont know where your reasoning of using B major came from. but going back to looking at the notes in the chord. if A is the root (which is what i really wanted) then we have A13m9b5. if we were to use F# as the root then first we would change some of the naming of the notes. A, C#, F#, A#, D#, G. and the answer would be F#6 addb9/A. i think thats what cas called a slash chord. anyways you post a chord now.

god damn, i cant believe i keep spacing that.... i always think diminished triads in chords like that, and when there's a six, i always put it as an add... good ol gay me.... then you have to remind me it's a bb7.... i even remember that chord where i had this same problem.... damn....

i fixed the chord in the quote. ok. BM7#5 (2/#6). we have a B as the root. ok. notes bottom to top. C#(2), FX(#5), A#(M7), B (root), and GX(#6). i just assumed the major third was covered somewhere else. but thats not what i would call that chord either. (where do you get these things? im sure the only look weird because they are taken out of context.) i would say G dim (b4/9). that makes most sense to me just looking at it taken away from the song its being played because i cant see the music. anyways. i dont know if im right or what. i will post anyways.

yours could be a DdimM7 add b6.... ok i confused myself so let's check.... ok, i remembered that mistake i made (twice) about the 6 being a bb7... so check that out, but the sixth was flattened, so it wouldnt be a full dim chord....... so F (b3), Bb (b6), D (1), Ab (b5), C# (7), F (b3).... there's the D dim triad in there, 1-b3-b5, and taking into consideration there is no b7 or bb7, i added that M7 for the major seventh.... and the b6 is an add.... please dont tell me i'm doing something wrong.

holy confusion batman lol ....

well if the roots A, then it would be written as A7 add 6/b5/b9 (i don't know why you wrote minor9 in there :confused: ) however plenty of people WOULD write it as a 13, as that's the overall harmonic function the 6th is serving as ..... so in that case ... A7 add b5/b9/13

now .... if the root were F# ( and assuming we're naming it from the F# on the 6th string even though that ones not being played. .... it would be (and pay attention :p )

F# add #9/b9/13/A ( seeing as how you'll never really see a #2 written into a chord, we'll just call it a #9 seeing as how that's basically what it is )

if you want to name it from exactly where the F# is located .... then the name would be

F#6 add #9/b9/A


personally though.... this chord, to me, is just an Eb7 #9/#4/A ( or Eb7 #9/#11)

Edim (13)? maybe? possibly....I said E was the root, so we E (1), Bb (b5), E (1), G# (3), C# (6), and G (b3).... so 1-b5-3-6-b3.... diminished triad, so, the six becomes 13.... and we get Edim (13).... i'll post even if i'm wrong....




tsk tsk tsk .... :no: lol

presence of a 3rd takes presedence ;)

that chord has a G# .. the 3rd of E.

just as in the dominant chord gentlemen....... when a natural 3rd is present and a b3rd is present ... the b3rd becomes a #9

so...........if you want E as the root, it's an Emaj add#4/#9/13 (or add #11 whatever you really prefer to write)

i would generally look at this as a Bb -7b5 add13/E. stronger harmonically..... and that's just the sound it has.

(ps. these chords come from harmonic minor harmony) the first one, the Emaj add#4/#9/13 one, comes from the 6th mode of G# harmonic minor (the lydian #2 mode)

and the Bb-7b5 add13/E comes from the 2nd mode (or Locrian natural 6) of the G# harmonic minor scale.

and seeing as how these 2 modes are tritones apart, the chords are pretty much interchangeable. so both names will work

but it's definitley not a fully diminished anything.

E--0 E7 add#9? someone check this... i read back on one of cas' hints that if a 3 and b3 are present, the 3 comes first... so a E chord with a dominant seventh while the bassist covers the fifth.... to put that b3 in there, it becomes a #2/#9... so therefore it's an add... eh? huh? wha?
