Which is more appropriate to call this chord?

On a guitar tab, i write it as x3402x. That's a C, F#, G, D


Is that a Gmaj7sus4 or a Cadd9aug4 (not sure if that's how it would be written)?

it depends on the function of the chord, which is dictated by how it appears in context.

if it was a C chord, i'd probably label it Csus2(add #11). but it's probably not a C chord unless you're utilizing a C pedal.

what is the context that the chord appears in?

Yeah sorry about that it's x3403x, not 3402. Context is in G major or E minor, or really any key that just has the one accidental. I use it mainly as a function of a C chord within that context to add some extra flavour to the chord.

if it really is a C chord in that context, you can call it what i've written above.

but personally, i'm presented with a very strong feeling that the chord, in fact, has the function of a D chord, and would be a D11.

I know what you mean, in the context i use it in mostly it serves as a kind of C, but i too feel it should be a D of some sort (D7add11 since there's no 9? Idk). Also, what makes it a Csus2(add #11) and not a Cadd9aug4? The lack of a 3rd and/or 7th? Or the order of ascending intervals?

Depending on how it resolves, it's probably D7/C with the G being some sort of pedal tone/other decoration.

the chord has no third, meaning the D is most likely a suspension (actually a ******ation in this case, but that's not really part of the modern musician's vocabulary -- everything is sus to them). i wouldn't call it a 9th because then the 3rd and the 7th are absent, making the quality of the chord completely ambiguous. i would only call it a 9th if i was using it for the fact that it's ambiguous.

not to mention that "aug4" is not part of proper chord nomenclature.

What's the whole progression?

We get so many threads with ppl asking what a chord is, but it's always on it's own (no context).

Context, especially with a voicing like that. Just post up the whole progression so we can see. It'll make everyone's life so much easier.

Cmaj#11. Done.

Every time I've seen this chord, it's just functioned as a standard IV in G major with extensions.
