I've been tabbing a chord the last hour and I realized one of the chords in the chorus is a D but without the F# at the bottom... so it would be (xx023x). When I put this in as a D it's going to include the 2 at the bottom when that's going to sound pretty incorrect. Is there a way to alter my tab so the D is displayed correctly? If not I'm assuming the only other thing to do is include a note in my tab that it's a D variation?

Thanks!

if you know it has a F# as the bass note, then you can write it as a first inversion or slash chord like this D/F#. there's two ways to play this chord: either, 2x0232 or 254232, there ya go...

Actually I don't know why I didn't think of that...
Well I came across another chord which I don't think is quite as easily labeled.
(x2x402)
As well as (x4x60x) and (x5x70x)...
Any idea for those?

Wow, that 254232 sounds dead on... I've never played that chord before but the progression from F# to that sounds better than what I came up with. Thanks!

the first one is strange voicing of a B5 chord, notice that you are playing 3 B's (in fact two in unison) and an F#

The second one isn't really a chord it's a C# octave with a minor 7th in there as the B

the third one is similar it's a D octave with a B which would be the 6th of the scale.

I can tell you from all this that your song is in the key of D, the whole song will more than likely be written with these notes D E F# G A B C# D, i hope this helps

oh and that 254232 chord, it's just a C shape bar chord, it will play any first inversion up and down the neck, I've played a lot of Christian worship music which uses a lot of inversions since a lot of it has piano arrangements...
