Hello!

So I'm figuring out this chord here;


e|---x---|
B|---7---|
G|---7---|
D|---0---|
A|---x---|
D|---7---|


I believe it's similar to a D open chord but this particular one also has a B note (low e-string 7th fret) in it.

Does this makes this chord an D/B?

And does this also go's for this one:


e|---x---|
B|---2---|
G|---2---|
D|---0---|
A|---x---|
D|---2---|


an A/F# ?

Thanks in regard.

O.K. but is it really necessary to use Dmaj6 instead of Dmaj?

And what about the other one than?

That would be an Amaj6/F#?

i think you typed something wrong
if you're in drop d tuning, 7th fret is not B on a D string

The first person responses are write, But just remember most funny chords like that can have more than one name. We are assuming you are in the Key of D. They would be different altogether if you were in say... B

Well, I'm tuned in standard tuning. (E-A-D-G-B-e)

But for the first one it's these notes:

B, D, D, F# (correct me if i'm wrong)

and the second:

F#, D, A, C# (correct me if I'm wrong)

Hmm, I'm still confused here...


(Sorry, I'm not really good at this kind of chord structure things.)

oh for God sake lol, now it's standard tuning again

Ok then Standard Tuning they are:

1.Dmaj6/B (Dmaj/B)
2.Dmaj7/F#

Drop D

1.Dmaj/A
2.Dmaj9

It's just because you have the tab written as a D on the low e string, I didn't notice at first.

I better not be wrong after all that
#13
Oh, god I'm stupid
How could I have written the low E-string on the tab as a D.

I'm sorry, that was all my fault.

But I think I've got it figured out by now.

Thanks!

2.Dmaj7/F#
Standard tuning
1. B D D F# - whats wrong with Bm?? (also a Dmaj6 is just written D6. "maj" only comes into it when differentiating a maj7 from a dom7 and further extensions to the maj7 chord)
2. F# D A C# - what's wrong with F#m6??

Drop D

1.Dmaj/A
2.Dmaj9
Drop D I got
1. A D D F# = D/A (you don't need to write "maj")
2. E D A C# = Aadd11/E

These are what make sense to me.

noted 20tigers, thanks. For some reason I seem to be stuck on one root trying to make it fit rather than changing the root to form a simpler chord.

Yeah I did see what you were doing there, and honestly the names you came up with that way may turn out to be better than mine when you hear the chords played in context.

I just couldn't believe there were a few people offering names in standard tuning and no one tried Bm or F#m6. I thought they might feel rejected so had to give them a voice.
