I was wondering if a chord like that exists, if not, how do you call it then?

e|-------
B|--6----
G|--6----
D|--6----
A|--5----
E|-------


So you have: 1 b3 b5 7

Well, when we're at it...can you also add and extra 9 so you get: 1 b3 b5 7 9?

For example:


e|--7-----
B|--9----
G|--8----
D|--10----
A|--0----
E|-------


How would you call this?

The only hit i get is B13b9 no 5th.

The shape of a mmaj7b5 I know is like


e- - - - - -
B- - - 5 - -
G- - - 6 - -
D- - - 5 - -
A- - - 6 - -
E- - - - - -


Its a 5-root, so this would be a Ebmmaj7b5, but I'm not 100% sure.

(And I think I'm barely on topic )
My gear:
-Gibson Les Paul Studio
-Fender DG-11E Black (Acoustic)
-Marshall AVT50
-Cry Baby "Wylde Wah"
-Roland RE-20 Space Echo

You have this: 1 3 5 b9

C#addb9 possibly a Dbaddb9, I could spend a few minutes working out which is more correct but I cbf

The root is actually the C# note (because a Major third is usually more correct in these situations than a minor third). It also makes more sense if theres a natural fifth instead of a flattened fifth and having a minor third and a major seventh in the same chord is pretty irregular (mM7 chords arent too practical)

EDIT: give me a few minutes to work out the other chord..

Arghhh, the second chord seems to be a tone cluster. It's too late at night for me to give it a sensible name.

That's a (relatively) ordinary 7b9.


TS: Your first chord would be a Dm ma7b5. (D(1), Ab(b5), C#(7), F(b3)).

Your second chord is also correct and is a Am ma9b5. Could also be called a Cm ma7b5add6 or Cm ma7b5/A.

A much more usable voicing for a Cm ma9b5 if you omit the 3rd:
----
--3-
--4-
--4-
--3-
----


Don't think they'd be very useful other than for atmospheric or 'jazz club' moments though.
