Yeah, course. I didnt say coz i didnt want to confuse the poor guy!

Like a D is:

xx0232 but if i played x00232 it would be written as D/A, coz i've included a bass A note.

Wonderboy by Tenacious D has a Progression using this style.

D to D/C to D/B to D/A, which is simply:

xx0232 to x30232 to x20232 to x00232

Simple but looks complicated.

Can also work for wierder chords like A7sus4/E

which is an A7sus4 (x02030) but with the low E played open (003020)

Well, every chord needs a 5th note. Only difference is whether you need to play it. eg. in C13th, you need to make sure that you play the 1st, 3rd, 7th, and13th.

Now using your example of a B, (B, D#, F#), the E is the 4th note. So if you played all of these notes, you will be playing the 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 5th.

Which equals a Badd4 (or add11 depending on the pitch of the E).

Hope that helps!

Great thread ben. I'm moving to archive forum now so this doesn't get lost in a mass prune.
