you could just say Asus4, i believe, since the E is already stated in the "sus4"

(do correct me if im wrong)

EDIT: tho i would think its an E, because there are 3 E's in that chord, as opposed to only 2 A's.

so i would agree with E7sus4

dosnt need to be.


theres a tonne of chords that dont have the root as the bass note. Funk Chords are a decent example.

well theres three possibilities for it, if you play it like he wrote.

Dsus2/E
ASus4/E
E7Sus4

but i was taking it as he wanted the A-chord type.

Edit: yeah there are chords like that. but alot of them are just versions of a simpler chord fingering. so technically you're right, but theres like 10 different names for each chord. example : G is also known as

Bm+5/G
D6sus4/G
Dsus4add6/G

I wouldn't call it an E7sus4 if I was playing it after an A.

Or an Asus4 after playing an E7.

I wouldn't ever play an Asus4 / E, because I'd probably mute that E-string and play it with an A in the bass. Makes more sense, sounds better. I'm sure the chord above could be considered that, but if it was an A, it's just common sense to play an A as the lowest note. It doesn't NEED to be, but whatev. It's what you intend as a writer, usually, that dictates the chord's name.
