Someone on UG chat asked this question and i cant seem to answer it.

The question is; what is the name of this chord: D, F#, G. Basically a major chord, but the fifth is lowered a full tone. Anyone got a name for this chord? Thanks.

What i think it is, is a Dadd4, except, wouldnt you have to play the major perfect 5th as well?

No you don't have to. The 5th is not as important as the 3rd. The 5th is such a consonant interval that it can often be heard as an extension of the root anyway.

Dadd4.

and the 5th is never called major. it's either diminished, perfect, or augmented. just like the fourth and eighth (octave).
all the other degrees are major, minor, diminished and augmented.
