E#majorbb2##4sus9 is ok

but it has to be preceded by another chord and its usually good to have a chord following it to make it sound good !
remember that i love you - no matter what i say

Billy 16: actually that 7th fret note on the B string would be an F#. so that wouldnt be another 5th, which would be an E. so i think Ninjato is correct.

Paul


I don't know what the ###### I was thinking there. I think I was thinking seventh fret to the E, but I had that a bit backwards.



I just looked at the position. the A7 position pretty much jumped out in my face and the pinky didn't sit where I would have normally played the octave minor 7th but one fret back which made it a major 6th and that's how I came up w/ A7add6

The chord at the beginning of "A Hard Day's Night". Have no idea what it is. It's probably usless in any other song. It was probably a mistake that they decided to use just for the fun of it. Or is was used because it was for a soundtrack.

I like G.. but with the finger beside pinky on 3rd fret of the B string... gives it a nicer ring

e|-----|-----|--X--|-----|-----|-----|
B|-----|-----|--X--|-----|-----|-----|
G|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|
D|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|-----|
A|-----|--X--|-----|-----|-----|-----|
E|-----|-----|--X--|-----|-----|-----|


You've change a 3rd into a 5th when you do that. Leaves you with only 1 3rd to make it major and two 5ths which always have a big open sound. I find for whatever reason when I learn tabs of British bands they tend to this spelling whereas American bands tend to the other G with 2 3rds and 1 5th.


Exactly, but i like the sound better than a regular G, and it is easier to go straight to a D a lot faster this way.

For me, my pinky hurts without the support of my ring finger, so I always play it like that.

well that chord i actually an A13. i usually just play an A13 like 5x678x though. but adding the E on the B string and the higher A on the E string makes it sound more full.

i didnt notice it earlier, but you dont really say 7sus6. so i think a better name for it is a 13. plus the F# is higher up thus making it the 13.

haha its fun naming and figuring out chords biggrin.gif....

but i really like Maj7, Maj9, and Minor9 chords

I didn't say A7sus6. I said A7add6.

The reason I say it this way is due to the fact that it is easier for a guitar player to figure out what to do instead of counting outside the octave. If you subtract 7 you still get the same note and you just have to think inside one octave. Just a little easier to mentally visualize.

On the A13 issue
a b c# d e f# g# a

An A13 doesn't contain the 7th A13/A6: A C# E F#

A7add6 does.... A C# E G# + F# (w/ the G# being the 7th)

oh really? are you sure ninjato? cause even on that website, all the 13th chords say (not really)..hmm kinda weird.....all they give in that site is the root, third, fifth, and the upper extension.

ive always known the 13th chord to be more than 4 notes. the formula is 1-3-5-b7-9-13. and generally speaking the root, third, and seventh are the most important notes in an extended chord, along with the uppermost extension(being the 13 in this case).

hmm oh well.....

I did some research and it seems to go both ways depending on who is elaborating. I think you are more correct the more I think of it.

As a general rule of thumb, open ended chords w/ 9ths, 11ths and 13ths have the b7 while the closed ended ones like 6ths are not. I will check at school today and make sure. It's been a while since I took my music theory class.

You got me curious. WHy didn't that website elaborte after saying NOT REALLY is strange.

i think the reason why they only showed the root, third, fifth, and upper extension is because they just wanted to give the basic notes and how its related to its relative minor. like C and Am.

but yeah it does depend on who is elaborating. because a jazz guitarist could probably tell you all the different positions you could play the A13, which notes do what, how to use it in a chord progression, and then show you a scale run that you could use with it. biggrin.gif . and then someone other guitarist might have just learned of 13th chord in a particular way and wanted to use it in a song. so they might not have really cared to find out which notes make up the actual full chord. oh well.

i actually wouldve thought like you had done, how you noticed the A7 shape and then added the other note. but ever since i started to study jazz, ive looked at chords in a whole different way. you say potato i say patato. haha. well i think we should just stop with this and play some more guitar now guitar.gif

so anyways, where do you go to school? i go to a normal college now, but i would love to go to a music school and study just music. and man i think im still drooling over that L-5 and ES-345........
