C-G-C-D-G . . . . call it whatever you want. C9 whatever else. . ..

Csus2 is correct. It cant be C9 due to the lack of a major 3rd.


Or the 7th.

If it was C9 it would have to have C (root), E (major 3rd), G (fifth), A#/Bb (minor 7th) and D (ninth).

Adding the 3rd to a Csus2 would make it a Cadd9.

If you don't even know the notes of the fretboard, you shouldn't be concerned about how the chord is constructed.

without actually playing it, sounds like a c maj bar chord to me.

Nope that would need 5th fret on the B string which is an E, the 3rd of a C chord. The third fret is down a whole step so that becomes a second, thus it is a Csus2.

Since intervallically that is not the second, wouldn't it be a sus 9? Since in fact the interval is an octave above the second?

Possibly but generally if it's a "sus" chord you use the 2 and the 4 for naming purposes and extended chords (add and other versions) use the compound interval names. In theory what you say should be right but I think the convention arose to stop confusion...probably, I would have thought anyway, who knows.

It looks like a G5 chord, with the second note added.

So I think it is C5add2.

EDIT: Sorry, I meant it looked like a C5 >.>

It's a Csus2! Pretend your first finger is the nut and you'll see it's an ASus2 moved up three frets for crying out loud. All E, ,A & D - based barre chords do this!
Moving on.....

Well, I am a little unconventional these days since I haven't honestly studied theory in a class in a long time. I mean theory is good for understanding but then you kinda forget it all, and the only decent use for theory I have had lately is really just for telling people what I'm playing so they can follow.

I've never studied theory in a class of any kind, just looked at lessons on t'internet.

I think that that's all theory is really for, you can write whatever the hell you like but as long as you have a good understanding of theory you can communicate it easily to anyone. Sure it can help you if you don't know what to do when harmonizing or whatever but you don't need it to write interesting or complicated music.
