What would this chord be?

2
3
4

Now obviously if the root was the A string and not the E it would be a Bm chord (?), but the root is on the E string, so I'm guessing it's now some sort of F# chord?

I don't actually want to play this chord, I'm just curious as to what it'd be called. haha

It's still a Bminor chord. It just has an F# note for the bass note.

It would be notated: Bminor/F#

Yeah I accidentally put the F# right after the B and then i saw it was minor and accidentally typed it and hit reply and yeah.

I edited it before it said "edited by: xx at xx" though

sorry if im wrong but isnt the root still b the bass note is f??

Technically, yeah. The root is the note the chord is based on, in this case: B. F# is just the lowest note (the bass note).

I accidentally said root. Oops.

They get used interchangeably a lot and it leads to little mishaps like so. Damn not enough sleep getting.


Edit: What error?

ok question about bass notes then

when i play Cmaj as an open chord i sometines put a G as the bass note

e-0
B-1
G-0
D-2
A-3
E-3
the notes being

e-E
B-C
G-G
D-E
A-C
E-G

so this would be Cmaj/G but is this considered an inversion of C?

C major 2nd inversion. C 4/6. C/G.

People usually get lazy and write out inversions of chords as slash chords though. Either is acceptable.


Edit: ^well look at you! giving the simple answer before me. that's twice i've been too slow tonight. First it was shred, now you.

Edit2: In the same thread!!!!! Argh! I'm done with tonight. I give up.
