What's your favorite type of chord? I like M7s, 9s, and this one the most:


E-|--1--|
A-|--3--|
D-|--5--|
G-|-----|
B-|-----|
e-|-----|


Does anyone know what that's called, by the way?

I'm expecting some wierd and interesting answers with this. If you answers aren't commonly known or available online, post them.

I don't have any preference, since every chord has its own place and its own use in music.

the chord in the first post is an Fsus2

Wouldn't it be an F5sus2? because of the lack of a third?

anyway, my favourite chord is A5.

a sus chord implies that the third isn't there
in a sus2 chord, the third is replaced by the second
in this case, the notes are F, C, and G, so the the third of the F chord (A) is replaced by the second (G), making it a sus2 chord

Didn't know that, thanks for clearing that up. (still a bit foggy on theory)

Dadd4/9 (open C moved up two frets)

D9sus4 is the chord you're looking for. You can't add a 4 (not trying to sound mean, just telling you what's correct).

I think a lot of you are misreading this thread. He's not asking what your favourite CHORD is, he's asking you your favourite chord TYPE.

I voted other as my favourite type of chord is a m9M13. I'm not exactly sure of the correct naming syntax of it, but the chord structure is 1 b3 5 b7 9 13.

you can definitely add a 4, and in this case it calling it a sus wouldn't be correct. in a sus4 chord, the 4th replaces the 3rd. but in the Dadd4/9, the notes are D, F#, G, and E. So in that case you have the 3rd and the 4th, so it can't be a sus, and is called an add4 chord. You're also adding the 9th for the same reason, and calling it a D9 chord would imply that its a dominant 9th chord, which it isn't.
