Ok, I saw a thread many moons ago, but no idea where it is at.

Can someone provide me the name of this chord?

D-4-
A-2-
E-2-

Also, how does one "calculate" the name of the chord?

Its a B5.

Also, how does one "calculate" the name of the chord?


Its B5 because it contains only the 1st and 5th notes of the B major scale.

Thats obviously a very brief answer but to fully answer that question is gonna take more typing than anybody could probably be bothered doing. Just google 'chord construction' or something like that.
