I need the name of this unique chord!

Okay so my friend was playing these really cool and unique sounding chords the other day. It's the same shape wherever on the fretboard. One example of the chord is:https://imgur.com/a/FBYJs

What is this chord called?

Emaj7.

There's a chord naming thread you should use next time.

OK, FWIW, you can't play that chord all over the fret board with the open e-1 string you have in that diagram. (Unless of course you enjoy a bit of dissonance).

But, you can use a full barre across the 7th fret also, (at the position shown), which is the same chord, and it is then fully moveable.

It's a variation based on the A open shape. Where you fret the G-3 string determines whether the chord will be plain major triad, major 7th, or dominant (b7th) form.

At open position A major
e-1 0
B-2 2
G-3 2
D-4 2
A-5 0
E-6 X

A Major 7th

e-1 0
B-2 2
G-3 1
D-4 2
A-5 0
E-6 X

A dominant 7th

e-1 0
B-2 2
G-3 0
D-4 2
A-5 0
E-6 X

Pink Floyd's "Time" uses the shape open in the bridge:

Note the Dmaj7 to Amaj7 change @ lines 5 & 6 plus again @ lines 13 & 14

Or use the "jazz" shape for Amaj7 which is (eBGDAE) x566x5, which you can move anywhere on the neck since you mute the unfretted strings.
