Hey guys, i've been messing around on my guitar and I have a progression, but I don't know how to label it. I have some knowledge of music theory, I just don't know what I should label it. The chord progression is this:

EbM7, second inversion (Bb, Enat, Eb, G)
[6 - 6 - 0 - 0 - x - x]

5 | 6 | 7| 8
| - | - | - | - |
| - | - | - | - |
| - | - | - | - | (played open)
| - | - | - | - | (played open)
| - | x | - | - |
| - | x | - | - |

AbM7b5 (Ab, C, D, G)
[4 - 3 - 0 - 0 - x - x]

2 | 3 | 4| 5
| - | - | - | - |
| - | - | - | - |
| - | - | - | - | (played open)
| - | - | - | - | (played open)
| - | x | - | - |
| - | - | x | - |

Then, back to the EbM7 6/4, then

F#augb9 (F#, D, F#, G)
[2 - 5 - 4 - 0 - x - x]

2 | 3 | 4| 5
| - | - | - | - |
| - | - | - | - |
| - | - | - | - | (played open)
| - | - | x | - |
| - | - | - | x |
| x | - | - | - |

Now, I don't know whether it should be a I - IV - I - V progression (assuming the EbM7 6/4 is my I), or what it should be. I don't even know if those chord names are 100%, just what I got. Any help would be appreciated. I need to learn how to name chords better anyways, and I'm trying to learn about chord progression, so any input will help.
4/4 is just so boring. <_<

i don't know, for simplicity's sake, i'd recognize the second chord as an Abmin/maj7 (b5) and the last chord as a Gmaj7(no 3)

it doesn't really follow any key strictly - i wouldn't bother myself too much with the theoretical makeup of the progression though

In tab, he means:

|-----------|
|-----------|
|--0--0--0--|
|--0--0--4--|
|--6--3--5--|
|--6--4--2--|

just wrap it in code tags so it comes out nice and straight

2nd Chord is Abmaj7#11, there's no minor 3rd so it's not a min/maj7 chord

So JimmyPage97, you're basically right on the money Ebmaj7 - Abmaj7#11 - Ebmaj7, I IV I in Eb, then the last chord is basically random and you could name it as you did or as axe-grinder did or even Dadd11
