(looks kind like smoke on the water)

anyhow, it sounds very mystical when arpeggiated from the A to B string and back.

D#add-13

first 3 notes are a D# major triad. The B note on top is a b13

I think it's a B7M/5+. But I'm not sure : )


It starts on a D# not a B

It can however be B7M/5+ 1st inversion, but not without context.

He also says he arpeggiates it so naturally (Aurally) the major triad comes first with the b13 on top.

Eb major with a minor 6

i see an Eb, it's fifth (Bb), it's major third (G) and it's minor sixth (B)

but that's only thinking of it as being played solo on one instrument. if some other instrument is playing more notes, this chord could take different context. looking at it as bass note = root note, i'd call it an Eb something.

It doesn't have to start on the root note... this is where you start to get into inversions of chords

Do you always only read the first line of a post?

Well thanks peeps, I don't get any of this music theory gibberish, I'm pretty much just asking so I have a name for Guitar Pro to have it search for more of these chords n' stuff.

so this is like from a C Harmonic Minor with but with an added b7?

so would this be like a Ebmaj/minor 6? gah please can you explain this?

for some reason im having a Mind block

C harmonic Minor with a b7 would just be C natural minor...


Also, whoever said the B is a minor 6 in the Eb G Bb triad is wrong. It would be an augmented 5th. B, be it Bbb Bb B B# or B## will be some sort of 5th over Eb since the letter B denotes a 5th over E. If you were going to call the B a Cb, it'd be a diminished 6th anyway, not a minor 6th.

^This.

It's not a B rooted chord. The D# being the lowest note as well as the Perfect Fifth above it (The A#) give the D the influencing root feel. The B is a decoration.

Another way to play this same chord with the same voicing would be

e|-x-
b|-0-
g|-0-
d|-8-
a|-6-
E|-x-

You just got to figure out which way is better for what you're playing. The difference between the two is only which strings you're playing which notes on. This will of course affect your arpeggio.

thats why i said "Added 7" im not even sure this is diatonic

i dunno i cant even think straight right now

could it be a Phrygian Dominant? making it a Eb-b6?(Eflat b6 lol sounds wired to say flat twice lol E Flat Flat 6)
#16
can someone tell me the finger positioning for G#m? its been a good while since i've worked with chords. i don't remember how suspended notes work, none of it. :/. thanks

It's not an added anything. C harmonic minor with the raised 7th (the entire reason it's called harmonic minor) lowered would be C natural minor. The raised 7th is an accidental, not part of the key.
