I've been experimenting with new chord voicings using the 'Chord within a chord' method. I came across a chord who's formula is 1 b3 bb5, I'm not sure what to call it.

FYI Chord within a Chord method, based on C major:

B dim6 -1...b3...b5...6
..........................B...D.....F....G
................................|-----------|
................(from D)..1....b3..bb5


My best guess is suspend the bb5 (as a 4) making it Dmin(sus4)


Thanks in advance.

I disagree. Bananas and ass are like peaches and cream.

could you not consider the bb5 as the root, in which case it would just be a dominant 7 chord?

Its a G7 chord, nothing else.
Yup.

Wow yeah you're totally right... I don't know why I didn't see that.

1 b3 bb5 is always a Dom7.

Not necessarily true.... If hes using a 1 b3 bb5, say lets do this in D, like he said, He'd have the notes D F and G, this could look like a G7, but whats limiting it to that? It could very well be a Gmin7, we have no third so we can't say that. Just to point that out =P but with the chord he gave us in the OP, it had the B in there, so therefore it would be the G7

D F Abb

Abb Enharmonic to G - D F G - Is a possible Gmin7 (no 3rd)/D Or a G7 (no 3rd)/D Inversion - Both Chords have a b7 in common. If that B is in the scale that you are referring to in the diagram, then that eliminates Gmin7 as the suggested function for that chord.
