So then what is this chord? It's not quite an F# but not a G. I just want to know what it's called so I can search for variations of this type of chord so I'm not playing it all the time as a power chord.

Thanks much!


For future reference, go to www.chordfind.com. Not only does it have damn near every chord position you could ever want in a very easy-to-use, intuitive format, but you can "reverse look-up" chords by punching in which frets are on which strings and it can usually figure it out for you.

Notes that make up this chord: F# - D - G

As stated up above, it's an augmented chord. So the formula is... 1 3 #5

F# - D - G
1 3 5

F+

...what? it's F#, Cx, and F#. it's F#(#5). there's no 3rd, but there's nothing to stop you from calling it F+.

you could refer to the Cx as a D, but then i'd be more inclined to call it Dmaj.
