It's basically a diminished 5th.

its not a chord. it's an interval, an E and a diminished 5th. Chord needs 3 or more distinct notes, octave doesnt called. It's just like a power chord being called a 5th (E.g.: A5)

E diminished, without the 3rd. Just the root and flat 5th


So its like a diminished powerchord i suppose.

Wouldn't it need the b3 to actually be considered diminished? When the interval actually defines the chord isn't it needed? I know at maj 9 chords you can get rid of the 5 cuz they don't really matter (j/k) but yeah.

So Edim5, like E5... just that the 5 is diminished, it's not a diminished chord (diminished interval).

i don't want to be nitpicky but wouldn't it be Eb5 cause dim is wrong and it does not have a major 5th

An augmented chord consists of a root, a major third, and an augmented fifth.
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.

Wouldn't E(b5) mean an E chord with a b5?

Like, E G# Bb

Not sure though

I vote we call it "E-tri" it's a new powerchord... instead of E5 (E,B) it's E-tri (E,Bb).


I still despise how powerchords are considered chords. They are intervals!! My music theory teacher/band teacher at my school disagrees with me though. You run in to stupid problems like this by calling them chords. /rant.

^I have no problem with calling them chords, so long as you know that they're not. I mean, they're used as abreviated chords.

That makes sense, but I've seen the E Bb E thing written as E(b5) in Guitar World.

In case you haven't noticed, the idea of calling the note A# rather than Bb is ridiculous in my opinion.

Agreed. In that case you wouldn't be able to relate the interval to a powerchord which really emphasizes the fact that it's easier just to call it a harmonic interval than make up some fancy "chord" name.
