What's this chord called?

E A D G B e
3 2 0 0 1 0

Can't seem to put a name to it - I was thinking it was a G/C or a Cmaj9 but after a bit of Googling I didn't seem to find a chord diagram portraying this pattern for either.
Thanks in advance!

i used to dislike there threads but since i love this chord....

let me see you have G B D G C E

So i see a GBD making it a G chord, the C being sus 4 and the e being a sixth. So i'd say its a G6 sus 4

I guess...

According to a chord dictionary found online, it is apparently a G6/4 chord.

Using sites to find chords is for the weak...

This.

To all of you thinking it's a sus4 chord, learn some theory. Sus4 is only used when the 4th replaces the third.

Yep, like a lot of chord shapes, you can often name them in various different ways depending on the context.

The most obvious answer is G6/4. This is probably how the chord would be practically used.

Although I agree the case could be made for also calling it Cmaj9 2nd inversion or, more accurately, Cmaj9/G.

Since the thread is up already, what is:

--0--
--0--
--2--
--3--
--3--
--X--

Sounds very..flamenco with an E chord. The chord identification site came up with nothing.

Fmaj7#11/C

It sounds good if you add in the root too:

--0--
--0--
--2--
--3--
--3--
--1--

This version is Fmaj7#11.

You're right, it sounds like something out of an Antonio Banderas soundtrack
