I was searching through tabs the other day and I found a really, really interesting chord that I really like but have never heard of.

It looks something like this:

 

|--0---|
|--5---|
|--6---|
|--7---|
|--0---|
|------|



The name on it was Am#7 or something along those lines, but I can't remember what it was called and what song it was on, so I can't go back and find it.

Does anyone know the name for this chord?

The name _m#7 sometimes refers to a min/maj7 chord (1 - b3 - 5 - 7). _m representing a minor chord, and #7 meaning a raised minor seventh.

Perhaps this is the voicing you were thinking of..

Am#5.. Sorry about that, got them a bit mixed up. And thanks anyway.

Although, I would like to know how the chord is formed? Would it be the same as what Johnljones said, except with a raised minor fifth? :\

In the first shape that you gave, there were (bottom to top) A, E, C#, E, and E. In the second chord shape that you gave, there were A, E, A, C#, and E. Same chord, different order of notes.

A/F ? As in an F with the bass note A..
I don't study chord names but I'd guess that.

|-0--E-------0--E----
|-2--C#-----5--E---
|-2--A-------6--C#--
|-2--E-------7--A----
|-0--A-------0--A---
|----------------------

its an open A in another position, just the same notes in different positions on the neck as above. has quite a cool effect if played as an arpeggio

It's not Am#5 because you have the unaltered fifth (E) in there... but you do have an F as well. The notes are F A C E, that's Fmaj7, and your third is in the bass. I'd call it Fmaj7/A.

then you might call it...an Am(add b13)?


e--0-- E 5
B--6-- F b6
G--5-- C m3
D--7-- A 1
A--0-- A 1

The F is not the 6 in A. It's the b6. Therefore the chord can't be Am6

Other way around.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
