I was playing in open E and accidentally played an A major and it sounded really good. In standard it translates to

E 0
B 2
G 3
D 4
A 0
E X

it's in the shape of some kind of F that's played a lot but I was just wondering what it is so I could find some stuff to add to it for another progression.

that is one ugly sounding chord. move it down a step, still open. that's music.

A F# Bb C# E

Amaj6(b9) (EDIT: Changed the slash to brackets - a slash would imply the b9 in base > . < would be my guess (somebody please correct me if I'm wrong). Depending on context though, the naming would differ.

Also, it resolves very nicely to G with the third doubled (just a mini-observation )

Dissonance is viable music, and the above chord would be a great turn-around in many jazz pieces. Context is king.

A6(b9) if you take it with A as the root.

E|-----------0----0----|-2------|
B|-3----5----1----2----|-3------|
G|-4----4----2----3----|-2------|
D|-5----5----3----4----|-4------|
A|-----------0----0----|-5------|
E|-3----0--------------|--------|


Works in this progression...
