Dude, I asked you to give some more information on the song, such as preceeding and succeeding chords, full progression or melody on top of the chord.

It's hard to give you a definitive name that isn't just a list of names it could be without this information.

ok. in my chorus of this song, here is what i have.


-----Em7---???--Gsus2/b---D/E
e|---2-------2-----3-----------2-----
B|---0-------0-----0-----------3----
G|---2-------1-----0-----------2---
D|---0-------0-----0-----------0----
A|---2-------0-----0-----------0----
E|-----------------3-----------0-----

I'd go with Bm6/A just because that's the simplest chord you can get out of this, and I don't think John Mayer (or pretty much anyone) would go to the trouble of intentionally writing a song with something like Amaj7sus2sus4add6 (that's actually one of the possibilities, according to Power Tab). It looks like the song is in Em so I'm pretty sure it is Bm6/A (especially if A is played by the left hand on piano).

Yeah but where does the G# fit in?

G# is the 6th. m6th chords don't contain a minor 6th interval. They are built as 1 - b3 - 5 - 6, not 1 - b3 - 5 - b6.

Seriously?

I was always taught that minor chords have the respective minor intervals for their chord names.

Why on earth would it work like that?

Minor chords have a minor 3rd, b3. Nothing else is required to make a chord minor.

*chuckle* A peanut. With a face.



Go to your staff paper and re-write this song a half step down so on the paper it'll be like you have a "C" just move it down to a "B#"




Know your theory, then play like you don't.

I think the most common way of notating that would be Baddb13 or Baddb6. Bb6 would imply a Bb major 6th chord.
#16
That came up in another thread... I would just think of it as a ma7, but maybe there's some sort of context where you'd hear it as a B with an extension.

the 2nd chord?

I played through the progression, and to me it sounds like E9sus - E9/A - Gadd9- D/E

Its pretty obvious when you listen to it, you can hear it resolve from the 1st chord to the 2nd. The A causes a bit of a problem in the E9 chord. To me it sounds like either a mistake. Anyway thats my analysis..

I think he meant he would look at a _maddb13 chord being a _maj7 chord where the root is the b6. Example.. Amaddb13 would be A - C - E - F, which he would just look at as being FΔ.

I don't think he was referring to the chord the OP posted.
