First of all, this page is just great. The problem I have when I tab is that I cant figure out what chord it is. I make something up and just write what I mean in the beggining of the tab like this:

Cadd9/A: x02030

I know how to take Cadd9 and just use that chord to write the chord above. But I dont know if its right and I cant find any page that can name that chord for me. I know I have to learn by myself but I dont know how.

Now I ask u guys for help. Do you know any program, homepage or any online lessons so that I can learn how to name chords like this above right?

I hope I havnt broke any forumrules. If so, please write what is wrong and I correct it asap.

And again, thx for this awesome site with these awesome, helping people.

Best wishes // Jonas

Write it out note for note
A E G D E

There's no C so it doesn't quite make sense to call it a C chord of some kind

An A chord is good cause it has the Root A and the E is a perfect fifth.

It doesn't have a C of any kind so you can't tell if it's a major or minor chord. Instead it has a D which makes it an Asus4.

The G is a minor seventh above A so then we have an A7sus4 chord also written as A7sus.

EDIT: Sorry that doesn't really teach you how to find the names for chords on your own.

Oh Damn. Nice. Thx for your help. That site was awesome JudgeDrey! Just that kind of page I was looking for. That page will not inspire me to learn about musictheory but for now its just what I want.

Thx for the help guys. I will check out the page Chaos Nil.

As far as just looking them up (which *is* rather easy) you can use Guitar Pro (5). I just load it up and check it out and works fine for me and everything. Especially when I'm not around internet.
