Name That: Key/Scale/Arpeggio/Chord v2

I felt it was time for a new one of these, seeing as I've seen more and more people wanting and tyring to learn theory here. Plus, this thing is only beneficial. Let's see... Oh yeah, rules.

You post a lick, or a chord, or a scale and ask what it is. Or, you can ask for a musical blurb.. ie. A chord progression, and what's the next chord. Whoever answers the question right gets to post the next question, or can defer it to someone else. After about 24 hours, someone else can take it up and post a new question.

NO CRAZY EXTENSIONS
Firstly, because they have no real practical use. Secondly, it's just long and annoying. If you want to know what a crazy extension constitutes, here: CmMaj13#4b5(no 7). I'm sure some people can think of better examples, but there's a basic one for you.

If you get it right, and the question-asker doesn't give you the affirmation, but another user with credible status (who know's what they are talking about... think Cor, SD, Cas, Beat, slash_pwns, etc.) says it's good, then you can go ahead and post.

Use the CODE tags
It just makes things easier to read and organized.

yeah, but harmonically it's strongest function is that of a min11 chord, so I answered anyways.

Is that because it has the third (or this case, b3) over the sus?

Anyways, it's been handed to you.

Sounds good to me, if when you say G(9) = G9 and not G(9)=Gadd9.

I know, and it's not right. If SD means it that way, then it's wrong.

Woops, I'm dumb...
I'll say Gmaj9(6)/E

E F# D G B A

Code:
1 2(9) 3 5 6 7 G A B D E F#

Woops, was counting that note on the A string as G, And yes I did mean Gadd9, which is wrong.

I'll go with Gmaj9/E. I've never seen a chord named as Gmaj9(6) <--

-SD

It has a sixth though, doesn't it?

Or, what about D11(add 6) excluding the b7....

The note after the slash is excluded from the chord name. Besides that, it would be Gmaj13 then, no?

I don't know what you guys are smoking around here, but the strongest function is Em11. It's built pretty straight... wait, dead-on straight. All these other names have adds and skipped tones.

btw, any chord with a 6 and is written "6/9"... in smaller print.
