--------0-----
--------3-----
--------2-----
--------3-----
--------0-----
--------x-----

X, A, F, A, D, E


and what would be a good note to use under it in a bassline? the progression goes:

"?03230, Am, F, Am

thanks
My username is old, don't judge me (but old 311 is good)

That ^

I think it sounds nice with an F in the bass.

103230.

Wait, misread that. Lets see, anything in the A minor scale sounds good under it. Might want to use a chord tone to strengthen it or you could use a C which would be the seventh in the chord and would make it a Dm9. Basically anything in A minor would work though.

Okay

Well, since A appears twice, it's probably the root.
F is the minor 6th of A.
D is the perfect fourth of A. We can also look at this as the perfect 11th.
E is the perfect fifth of A.

So, I guess it's an A minor 11th? Or an A minor 6th with a suspended 4th?

If someone else could clarify what this is, I'd appreciate it too.

D minor add 9 is the best fit. When possible, you stack the notes up in thirds.

D-F-A are all in thirds and make a D minor chord. The E is the 9th. If a C was in there we could stack it all completely in thirds D-F-A-C-E but there is no C (7th) so it's an added 9.
