"Name That": With a Vengeance

Welcome to the "Name that/fill in that arpeggio/key/scale/lick/chord/song" thread ressurected!

If anyone can go through dozens of pages to find the possibly dead original thread, be my guest, but I think it's time that it be renewed.

Same rules as last time. However, I feel it necessary to bump the original "5 tone chord limit" up to seven to suit the purposes of 13th chords. However, keep them within reason. We don't need too many extensions. It doesn't make the chord harder to do nor is it necessarily more beneficial to one's knowledge to include an overdose of extensions-- it just takes longer to work out.

So, 24 hour limit on this. If he/she who gets the question right does not go, then he/she will either defer to anyone else or let 24 hours pass by, and in doing so, the turn will be up for grabs.

I'll have the first honor:

Code:
---- 6--- 7--- 6--- 7--- ----


Name the chord and the best resolution.

E7b9.

A major, perhaps in this voicing:
Code:
e|-----| B|--5--| G|--6--| D|--7--| A|--7--| E|-----|

I chose A major because it resolves a half step with the D to C#.

An easy one:
All four names for this chord!
Code:
e|-----| B|--6--| G|--4--| D|--6--| A|--5--| E|-----|


I'm glad this thread is back?

oo, this one might teach a few people some things. I'll let people catch this thread and have a go before blurting it out.

Remember, everyone, in a... cough*dim7*cough chord, each note is a b3 away from the last. Stacked minor thirds yield...?

Meh-- slow start. I'll give this thread a few boosts as it starts out.

Dim7, G#dim7, Bdim7, Fdim7

See everyone? It's like a synthetic chord-- each note is the same distance from the next one as the last one. In other words, D is to G# as G# is to B as B is to F as F is to D-- they're all a minor third away from eachother.

I would have liked Ab7 and Cb7 instead? _but yeah. That's right. Go for it, and thanks for explaining.

I'm not sure if I need to know the chord name or not, because I don't quite know what to call this one, but I'll let you all debate it and if this is illegal just disqualify me.

Code:
e|--0-- B|--4-- G|--0-- D|--4-- A|--0-- E|--4--

It's a grim sounding chord to be sure.

Emaj11(b10)

and yes, b10's do exist. it would be hard to arrange the note names enharmonically so no scale degrees are doubled. it would probably involve double flats and sharps, but its easier (i think) to just have a b10. i have seen b10's in many lead sheets.

.........and this chord (or at least the voicing) sounds absolutely horrible.

You can't have a 3 and a b3. That's why we have the term "#9," we can't have a b3 and a 3. However, we can't have a 3, 2, AND #9, so it's a b10.

Nah^. The most common voicing for 13th chords invovles only four notes (of the seven notes included in a dom13 chord), but who wants to say "G13 (no 5th, no 9th, no 11th): to play something like this:

Code:
---- 5--- 4--- 3--- ---- 3---


When "G13" works fine .

^ You could if you wanted, but it's not entirely necessary. I'd name it as Em/M11/Ab myself, to avoid the b10/#9 issue.

Whose turn?

I think that slsh_pwns should go.

EDIT: Yeah, both SD and slsh had the same chord, but slsh got it first. Go ahead.
