A5(#11) says I.

Name that chord thread next time.


I would argue that it's an Asus#4 chord, but I guess it would depend on the context.

Well, with JUST this chord and this chord alone I think it'd be definitely an A5(#11) because sus chords DO need that context.

They all require context.

Anyway, I'm just giving you a hard time, I'm not actually looking for the semantics argument.

The truth is, that chord could be called either. I most often come across that particular voicing in a context were it resolves to an A chord.

Oh, I understood what you were doing, don't worry

And yeah, that's the main place I see it. Other than in some jazzy dissonant stuff where they like starting and ending on chords like that...
