Identifying Chords + Time Signature Help

In short, I need help identifying two chords and a certain time signature. Any and all help is appreciated.

The first chord is fairly straightforward. I play it in A, but it's basically a root, fifth, major seventh, and a second up an octave (ninth?). The second chord is a root, major third, major seventh, and the second interval (again) up an octave.

The time signature is hard to identify for me, so if anyone has a reference on how to identify them, that would also be appreciated. It goes:

1+ 2+ 3+, 1+ 2+ (and repeats three times before changing chords or whatever).

Thanks again in advance.

Cheers.

For chords, I use www.all-guitar-chords.com

For your time signature question, It might just be my way of reading it, but it looks like 5/4 to me. The top number (in this case) 5, is how many beats in a measure you have. The bottom number, 4, is what kind of beat counts as 1 beat. In this case, a 4 means that a quarter note counts as one beat. So one measure is composed of 5 quarter notes.

first chord - V over a tonic pedal. (or just another chord over a different bass note if it isn't the tonic)

Second chord, just a normal major 7th.

The way you've written it looks like 5/4.

Which is why you shouldn't be giving out advice on this forum...

Thank you for telling me what I did wrong, oh wise one. I apologize for my oh so inferior ways. I am not worthy. /sarcasm.


I was thinking that he just wanted to know what the chord name was.

EDIT: The first chord would be a maj9(no3rd), no?
