Power chord, or fifth chord.

Thats an A power chord, or an A5. ALL chord's names are based on the name of the note of the first note played (eg on a normal G chors, the 1st note is fret 3 on an E string, which is a G, and on an E, it is E open), same with power chords. Examples:
e------
B------
G------
D2222 = E5
A2222
E0000


e------
B------
G------
D4444 =F#5
A4444
E2222

No, the context largely determines the name regardless of the lowest note played.

for example
e---
B---
G---
D--2
A--2
E--3

this could be an inversion of an Eminor or a G6

^That would be a stupid name.

Diads.
That's misleading. Diad usually refers to two individual pitches, not three with one of the being an octave higher than another.

I disagree. I don't know what context you'd have to use it in to get that to be reasonable and realistic, but I don't see it as wrong as it still accurately describes the notes of the chord. I don't really feel like arguing right now though so I'm probably going to leave it at that.

You don't count octaves as separate pitches. It is a diad, it doesn't matter how many roots, octaves, and fifths you have, it will still be a diad as long as it doesn't have other intervals.

this is the WRONG way to play an A chord...

What on Earth are you talking about? It's an A5, and it's not the wrong way to play anything.

Diad would generally refer to only two picthes being sounded. While multiple octaves of the notes don't violate "diadness," it is confusing on the guitar because diad almost always refers to two pitches.

And Shredwhatever, that chord is Em. Don't argue that with me.

i know what it is. i have a thing against these chords.
#20
As mentioned before, that's a power chord. It's got the root, and the 5th. The extra note, is only an octave of the A, which still leaves the root and 5th, which is A and E.
#21
lol why are you guys trying to re-invent the wheel. it's an A5. power chord. KISS rule.

Don't be an arrogant twat. That could definitely also be called an B b6sus4, as it has a B, G (its b6th), and an E (its suspended 4th).

I remember when I was really young, I had a wet dream in which i was being dragged along an urban countryside by a pickup truck.

Don't ask me I have no idea how the hell it happened.

^^ I don't care. MT has had too many problems with name-calling lately and it needs to stop. Calling someone a twat doesn't solve anything when it comes to made-up chord names.

Anywho, the second post answered the question. Hopefully a mod closes it or we can let it die.

bc most rookies think that power chords are it. they limit themselves. i mean, what they do is their business... but i'm only trying to give good advice. like when my buddy totally ripped off the power chord page off my charts 2 years ago. it was the best advice i've gotten. he said "learn the right way first...and even later, stay away. learn real music." it took awhile before i understood.

1. You actually haven't given any advice in this thread.

2. Power chords are most certainly NOT the "wrong way".

3. You should not "stay away" from them.

4. Power chords are not less a part of "real music" than anything else.

5. I still don't get what you understood; none of that really makes sense to me.

Yes, but he still could have been nicer about how he said it. We've been TRYING to get MT to be a bit nicer as a whole since for a while it was starting to get very disrespectful and mean. There are better ways to say what he said.
