Per, I've been practicing the F chord, with the A and B strings barred at fret 1, 2nd finger on the G string at fret 2, 3rd finger on the A string at fret 3, and fourth finger on the D string at fret 3.

By accident I did the above, but with the first finger on the B string at fret 1, and the high E string open. It sounded like a pleasant minor chord, but I can't seem to find it on a chart.

Any idea what it might be?

Please tab it out, because it's so confusing trying to follow your text.
I believe you mean you bar the E and B string on the 1st fret though, otherwise you're barring the A string on the 1st fret, and then fretting it on the 3rd as well.

Is this the chord you're talking about?


Which you changed to this?


I'd put it as a Fmaj7/C then.

Ibanez J.Custom, Prestiges, RG8, SR5 bass etc

Proving that sometimes it's cool, after you practice your actual chord, to move some fingers around and see what else is in the neighborhood! (especially your pinky)
