I think I am, but of course I would... Anyway, I'll show you my logic and you can decide.

The chord as written, lacks an "A". "A", is the 3rd of F major, so you can't establish it as an F chord, without another instrument playing.

Here are the notes of the chord:

e-1 @0 = E < The 3rd of C major
B-2 @0 = B < The major 7th of C major
G-3 @0 = G < The 5th of C major
D-4 @2 = E < another 3rd of C major
A-5 @3 =C < The root of C major
E-6 @1 =F < If no 3rd or 7th was present, this would be Csus4 (C, F, G)

However, when a 7th is present, the 4th and 7th are summed, and you get an "11th" chord. "C11" would be a b7 (Bb), or a dominant 7th, if you prefer.

When you consider that the "B" is a B natural, that defines the key, or scale, (with a fair amount of certainty), as C major, and not F.

Someone else might call it something different, depending on key or mode, buy my grasp of chord construction makes it out to be Cmaj11.

Try stacking up fourth intervals to get quartal chord shapes. I love to do this over modal grooves!


Whats funny is that could be almost serious.
