Technically, it's both. You can express many large extended chords as polychords, adding stability to the extended harmony due to the strength of triads.

But you can also have a real situation where there are to be multiple harmonies functioning independently at the same time. Both are examples of polychords. They work both ways, if that makes sense.

The second chord you posted is not a D11. I went to the site you visited and it gave me C6/9. Maybe you typed it wrong.

The site I posted does list that as D11. Right below C6/9. Thanks for the nice explanation tho.

Just wondering what chord a bog standard E chord is but one fret up. It sounds kind of weird, almost Spanishy, but doesn't sound out of tune.

And also what other chords can go with it. I guess I could CAGEDify it but it's going to be an uncomfortable stretch lol.

No idea if it's even a proper chord or not, I just love the sound of it lol

Could any of you amazing musicians help me out by taking this quick survey. I am a music student researching the benefits of mental practice, to gain an insight into how musicians use it and the situations they apply it in. I really appreciate your help!

Hi, this isn't the place to ask for tabs/chords for a song. You want the Tab Talk forum.

Work out the notes and go from there. E, C, F, A, B, E. Now you could call it an Fmaj7#11, but I'm not sure that F is actually the root. It sorta sounds like C is the root to me, in which case I guess it's a Cmaj13. If E is the root, then it's got a very ugly name haha.

As for another chord to play, take the E shape and move it up another 2 frets. So play normal E chord, move up 1 fret, move up 2 frets, back down 2 frets, then back down to E. Gives a Spanish sound.

I am wondering what the right thread is to ask for help in figuring out particular chords to a part of a song?

What would you call a chord with D F# G E? It's jut the C major chord moved up two frets. I'm using it to resolve back to E at the end of a progression. E F Am C then that funky D chord, repeat. Am and C are played for half the amount of time as the other chords.

^ Is it this shape x 5 4 0 3 0?

You could analyze the open strings as some kind of "pedal points"/non-chord tones, maybe some kind of suspensions that don't really resolve. It's certainly a D major chord. If you want a fancier name, D6add11.

Why D6? There's no B in the chord.

The notes there are what the other guy said; D, F#, G and E. I would look at it as a D4add9 or something.

Yup.


I was thinking maybe Dadd9add11, maybe tack a (no5) on the end if you feel like it, which is awkward, but it's an awkward grouping of notes. I was just wondering if there was a more elegant name that I was overlooking or if it's one of those that's just going a to have an ugly name no matter which way you look at it. It doesn't really matter anyway.

It's almost like a cluster since it has the 1 2 3 and 4. I was working on a song and was trying to come up with some chords to go with the vocal melody of a chorus and the more normal D type chords weren't sounding right, but some kind of D seemed like what the melody wanted. It just made it flow more naturally to have those notes being held over from the previous chord, like the C chord is still going, but it's actually a D now. So yea I guess it's sorta like a suspension. Almost like a sus2, sus4, and major chord all at once.

I concur with the Dadd9add11. Googled it just to make absolute sure. Basically ugly name regardless

Sorry, of course I meant 9, not 6.

But the main point is, the open strings are not really chord tones. They are sustained from the previous chord - so they are suspensions, but they are never resolved.

Just call it a D major. Oh, and the lack of fifth doesn't need to be written in the chord name. Dadd9add11 is the correct name but in this context the E and G are basically just non-resolved suspensions. Or you could call them some kind of "pedal points" (though IMO that would require them to be sustained for a bit longer).

D/C or D7 in third inversion.

in relation to C it's a IIMaj triad over a tonic bass.

In relation to D7 in third inversion, or I chord over a minor 7 bass note - possibly static D chord with a descending bassline.

EDIT:
It's not CMaj#11

CMaj#11 = C E G B D F#

D over a C bass (D/C) = C D F# A

Those two chords are not even close.

Even if you strip the CMaj#11 back to a shell voicing (it's bare essentials) you get
C E B F#.

That D over a C bass as some kind of C chord has no third no fifth and no seventh...i.e. it's not a C rooted chord.
