What constitues "add"? Haven't been able to figure it out to what I know.

Using "2" as an example

Is it because:

Asus4 is 1 4 5
Aadd4 is 1 3 4 5

Is that even correct? I'm jsut sort of freeballing this with some sense of logic.

Thanks.

Hard to explain....For an add4, you add the 4th degree of the chord i think. For an A, you would add a D note. For an Eadd2, you would add a G note i think. But im not sure really.

You're spot-on with what you said, TS, but most of time you'd say add9 (instead of 2) or add11 (instead of 4) because chords generally sound better voiced like that.

EDIT: yep, listen to the dude below me, he explains it a bit better.

To expand on this (for the TS), when you see a chord with extensions added beyond a 7th, a b7 is generally implied (e.g. an X9 chord would be written 1-3-5-b7-9). When you intend for this interval to be added onto the chord without the extensions coming before it, the term "add" is used (e.g. an add9 chord would be written 1-3-5-9)
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.
