Power Tab identifies it as a Cmaj7+9 but the notes don't seem to even fall in the Cmaj scale. I don't know much at all about theory and was hoping someone could shed some light on this chord's name. Thanks.

That fifth on the G string is a C note
The second note on the D string is the Major third note
The E's are fifth notes of the scale
The B is major sevent chord
And that sixth on the A sting is D# note wich someone more theory wise can explain to you.

Well the only third is between C and E so that would suggest Cmaj7#9/E

On the other hand the fact that the C is right in the middle of the chord and there are three E's would make me think something along the lines of Emaj7addb13(no 3rd)

E= root
B=5th
D#=maj7
C=b13

E sounds like the root to me

Even if it was Cmaj7#9 E is the lowest note so it would have to be Cmaj7#9/E

E isn't the root, it's a first inversion of Cmaj7#9.

And you know this because....? Have you seen the rest of the chord progression?

Nah, not jazz. I got it from a "worst sounding chord ever" contest and thought it didn't sound half bad if used right. Thanks for the help guys.

i know this because Emaj7addb13 minus the third is the only other option and that would make NO sense

i have the worst sounding chord ever:

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

strum it slowly and it makes your ears bleed.

No it could also be, D# b9#5add13/E or B11b9/E (no 5)

I think it's Emaj7addb13 because E is the most common note in that chord and it sounds like that's the root to me. I could be wrong. It would depend on the context in which it was played
