I want to know the technical term for the following chord:

E|-------------------------------
B|-------------------------------
G|--7---------------------------
D|-------------------------------
A|--5---------------------------
E|-------------------------------

Now I know that both those notes are the same -- in this case D, and that it's obviously a movable chord.

I want to know what the technical term for this is. Maybe a power chord of some sorts? Like, what would this be called in music class.

Thanks in advance.

I'd just say i was playing octaves, cause that's what i'd be doing.

yeah it's not a chord, just an interval relationship, just like dyads (or power chords)

in any case you'd just call it an octave.

I wouldn't call it a dyad because its still just one note.

i didn't call it a dyad, just compared it to the relationship. though yeah, it could be considered a dyad technically, but i'm not even getting into those semantics.

it is still an interval relationship. an 8ve isn't the same pitch as the 1 it's being compared to, being double the frequency.

Thanks for all the responses. Although I still feel like this is a bit of a mystery. So far it looks like we know its an octave, and maybe it could also be called a dyad or interval octave.

Not really a mystery at all. An octave and an 'interval octave' are the same thing. Do you know what an interval is? I'm not sure I would call it a dyad, but whatever. It's really just an octave after all, dyad or not. No real mystery here.

In music, a dyad is a set of two notes or pitches.
[2] Although most chords have three or more notes,
in certain contexts a dyad may be considered to be a chord.
