hi, i found this weird chord in a tab i was playing and i couldnt name it.
to me it looks like a D major chord with steps 1, 3 and 7 (3) played in it, but it has no fifth. so it's not a major 7th, anyone has a clue what it's called?
or can the 5th be left out and is it just the same as a major 7th?

EDIT not to breach runner.

Yep.

If you add the 5th lower than the D you'll get D maj 7 on the chord finder.

thanks for the replies. so it's a Dmaj 7th, with the 5th left out to create a dissonance?

It's a Dmaj7. The lack of a fifth doesn't matter in this case, it's tonally unimportant. You still have the root, third and seventh so it's enough to name the chord.

It's just a major 7th, with a major 3rd instead of a fifth

??? All maj7 chords have a major third.
