When you take an open Cmaj and move it up two frets (whole step). I imagine D-something. Thanks

According to guitar pro, it would be a D, F#m/5+, or a Asus4add13 (no5)

Chordbook is FTW but it couldn't find a match. It's a Cmaj open chord moved up so its X-5-4-0-3-0. Notes are D, F#, G, D, E. I use this a lot and always wondered what it was called. For now i'm going with NewShred, you get the prize broseph

This is wrong^

G is not a Maj6th interval of D it's a perfect 4th. (F# to G is 1 semitone/half step higher, how can 1 half step leap be equal to; a Major 3rd to a Major6th?)

B is the maj6th interval of D.

(edit: I think you counted 6 half steps from D, this is not a Maj6th however. In the major scale it's the 6th interval, but from the root it's 9 half steps/semitones away.

TS the chord is named 'Dadd9add11(no5th)'

D = the rooth
F# = the 3rd
A = the 5th (Which isn't in the chord, but a 5th has no harmonic value unless it's a diminished or augmented chord, so it can be omitted)
G = Perfect 4th (+ 7 because of the 3rd, it's not sus4, which makes it (add)11)
E = Maj 2nd (+ 7 because of the 3rd it isn't sus2, which makes it (add)9)

Further analysis, you MUST add "add" to the 9 and 11, because if you don't it's implied it's dominant.

D7add9 = called D9 and D7add9add11 = called D11

Likewise, you could theoretically call the chord D11 (no5th, no7th), but this is misleading in practice and (as far as I know) never used.
