Nothing fancy or too complex, just kinda confusing. (in standard tuning)

e----------------------------
b----------------------------
G----4------5---------------
D----2------2-------5------4
A----3------3-------2------2
E----x------x-------3------3

Now. the first I though is Cmaj7, however I cannot find it on any guitar chord sites (all-guitar-chord, chord-book, or jam-play). The 2nd one would be in the note family as the 1st, no? The 3rd chord I thought was a G major chord/Eminor chord, unsure about 4th chord.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

CMaj7no5

Just a major third interval, not really a chord.

Same again

The first is a Cmaj7
The second one is a C major because the formula is 1-3-1. So not really a complete chord.
Like the second one G major
And last one is Gmaj7

Hope that helps

well first one is: C, E, B.... no fifth forgot whats that called but its the 1st, 3rd, and 7th... cmaj7?

second: C, E, C just a 1st and 3rd, not really a chord, just a variation of ur cmaj

third: G, B, G Just 1st and 3rd again. Perhaps a variation of gmaj

fourth: G, B, F# 1st, 3rd and 7th... my guess is gmaj7

sorry. Havnt had theory class in a while now, but most are not complete chords...

Pigeon, sorry, kinda a theory noob, what do you mean by just a major third interval? And what would the 2nd and 3rd roots be? C and G respectively?

Yep. The same as calling a power chord a 5th chord because it only contain the root and the fitfh. A 3rd chord would just contain the root and the 3rd (and the cotave in this example)

However, if you were to play the root and a minor 3rd then im not sure if it would be called a 3rd chord or a flattened 3rd chord. If your playing in a minor key i geuss you would call it a 3rd chord still. very unsure btw

The 1st one that is just an interval is C E C. C -> E is a major 3rd interval. Some people call any two note chord a power chord, although most people associate a power chord with root and 5th.

And yes, the two 'interval chords' have the root C and G.

Sorry man, don't want to be that guy, but usually a root + 3rd is considered an incomplete triad, or not a full chord

And if you had a chord with 1, 3, and 5 in it. You would have a major chord. If you had a chord with a flattened 3rd (1, 3b, 5). That would be a minor chord.

Okay, thanks guys. So I would call the 2nd and 3rd chord C-three and G-three, just like (for example, root-5-root power chords) A-five or D-five?

I'd just say Cmaj7 and C. Fifths are generally unimportant and that's the underlying harmony you have going there. Right? I assume you don't have any crazy harmony with a Cmaj7b5 or anything. But if you wanted to be pedantic, throw in 'no5' or 'omit5' at the end or something.
