HI, I'm a beginner and trying to figure out a song and I'm stuck. What is this chord called- Its a C chord only using your pointer and ring finger (omitting the 2nd fret D string-middle finger)?
e-0
B-1
G-0
D-0
A-3
E-0

Is it even a chord?

Thanks

Edit: oops, sorry thought the 3 was a 2

Cadd9 with an E at the bass

or possibly

Em7/5+

It's just a CAdd2 first inversion isn't it?
I just realised though that I've used that chord so often without realising it.

Actually, you are only plugging C notes, so I guess it isn´t even supposed to be called a chord, more likely a unison interval plugged at the same time... crazy stuff, huh.

You're still playing the D. TS was just saying (Somewhat clumsily) that instead of playing the E typically found on the D string of a CMaj, you're playing just an open D.

Thanks everyone for your help!! It just sounds better than a regular C, and I just wanted to name it right so that it shows correctly on the tab I submit. I'll just put my own chord chart up on how to play the "C"
Thanks again!!

What are you guys on?

It's Csus2.

That chord where you take out the E that this chord has two of?

I never thought I'd make such a stupid mistake

C(add9) is the most likely, seeing that TS seems to be using it in place of a standard C chord.

I'd call it a Cadd9/E unless something really compelling about the context changed that.
