Playing it back again acoustically I see that now, sounds a lot nicer. My amp was slightly driven so it did sound to me wildly dissonant but maybe that's just me. :shrug:

In all honesty I'm not sure what to call your chords. They're all very dissonant, to my ear, and with strange chords like this I'm not really too sure how to name them, however I can give you the...

The majority of the rust is just on the corners of the amp where the steel caps are, nowhere near any electronics. However, there is a little bit by the controls, but not on them, nowhere near...

Is a footswitch worth it? (+other questions)

I've recently been given a Peavey Classic 30. It's not new, and there's no footswitch with it. The function of the footswitch (as I'd expect most are) is to switch channels and enable the volume...

I'll bear that in mind with Open G-I'll probably have a go with it when I get some new strings.
It may seem like a cop-out, but I have very slow fingers, and find it very difficult to play at speed...

A major 7th, or leading tone, is a half-step below the octave. So for G it would be F#.
A minor/dominant 7th (your b7) is a full step below the octave, hence in G it is F.

Look at the major scale...

In a progression that goes:
C

Am
G

What would the unnamed chord be? I have a feeling it'd be something like Em7add13 but that doesn't sound right.
