the 1x3xxx is just an octave. You're playing two F notes.

Everything you said is wrong. I'm sorry.

That's an octave. Specifically, an F octave. It's two F notes.

That's Ab/G#5




A powerchord is a root, a fifth, and then an octave

The extra octave is not necessary and it is not uncommon to put the 5th in the bass of A-string powerchords.

There are a bunch of ways to play powerchords.

You could call that all sorts of things if you really wanted to - an inverted DMaj7 without the third, an inverted Aadd11 no5, or a C#suspended b2 second chord with a sharp 5 C#susb2(#5).

In the right context it could be easier to describe it as D5 with a Db bass - D5/Db. Personally I would opt for an A4 with a Db bass -> A4/Db.
To my simple way of thinking this is the most descriptive of what is happening in that voicing of the chord and it would be fairly easy to work out how to play it from the name alone.

In my opinion octaves sound better around

5 and up the neck toward the pick ups.

Whatever you call it, if you move it down two frets (and possibly add the second string) you get the chord used in the chorus of Number of the Beast.

There's a nice segment in the Classic Album series which shows a closeup of Adrian blasting away at this, all by himself.

edit: I'm talking about the second shape under discussion, the mystery chord, not the F octave

That's my bad.


However, because there's no 3rd, there is no tonality. From that little bit alone, you couldn't infer a tonality either. There are only two notes there as well, which isn't even a full triad. It's an interval and nothing more.

i still think you need to take a closer look


and your right

it would be closer to a sus7no4 in the third inversion but there are 3 notes
song stuck in my head today


#13
Or... it has minimal tonality so it's really a D5 with a C# in the bass.

^ agreed

i am just sticking with what i am saying for my example and letting him know there are 3 notes

An inverted D5 which makes it an A4. - with a C# bass.

But if the chord directly preceding it was a D5 (with the D bass) then it would be a D5/Db.

EDIT: an A with a C# isn't that a Major 3rd? A first inversion altered A major chord - A(bb5)/C#.
I think we have covered every possible name now. Best one in my opinion still seems A4/C# followed closely by D5/C# (or A4/Db and D5/Db whatever you call the bass note)
