This says A13 sus2
A13. You could write sus2 if you really want them to omit the 3rd, but if the 3rd is optional, then the 2 is really a 9, which is implied by the 13.
Nobody is going to play all those notes anyway unless you write them out, so you give them enough in the chord chart to know what are the important notes.
yup a13 same notes as if fingered at 5th fretL but no.. it IS a sus 2, i missed the b (or a a7 6/9)
It comes up as A13sus2. Thanks.
If you actually "play" the progression, it sounds like and functions as a V chord.
A13. Nice voicing. Nothing special or exotic.
*The 3rd isn't mandatory, especially when you have extensions. In this case the 7th, 9th and 13th.
In the key of D I would call this a "Gmaj6/A" or "Gmaj13/A".
The A is just the bass note the chord is played over.
"maj" is important to the name of the chord in this instance.... as it implies the major 7th (F#) must be present. You can't just call it a G6 or G13.
As seen already in this thread, there are many valid names. I'm just providing the one I would use in this instance.
First thing that comes up when I googled chord recognizer
Oops. Didn’t finish reading the thread. Someone else already put this site.
My ear says it's functioning as the 'V' chord in the progression you gave us ( I - II7 - V7) and it has the sound of a sus chord....so I would think of it as an A13(no 3rd - which gives it that sus sound)....or some such thing....A13sus2..? A7sus2add6.....?????
for an Em there is a third there, and therefore the 4th cannot be a sustain..as I understand it. It is an ‘add’, I think.
after you play x02002, play 5x5322 before going back to D
and maybe make your last D x54422
Sounds reasonable. Let's make it Em9add4. Now that's teamwork.
IMO this is very straightforward. The progression is D - E7 - A13 - D also known as I - II7 - V7 - I.
It's a very simple II7-V but with a jazzed up V chord.
Hi, my interpretation is Emin add9/A. The E minor triad is there would have to be The A sus thingy doesn’t work because there is no d in the chord to sus the 3rd. It has all the parts of an E minor chord E G and B but no 7th so the 9 has to be add 9 otherwise it would include the seventh of the chord which is again the D. Yes I confused many classes before. The G maj 6 kinda works but the 7th F# is there as well and the 6th and 7th are substitutions for each other. That’s my 2 cents. But yes it functions as the V chord in D.
upon playing it and listening to the progression. (even though the E7 seems like it could/should be an Eminor) The chord in question is an A dominant, and it functions as a 5 chord and wants to resolve to the D (which is the 1) even though the chord in question doesn't have a third.
so I would call the chord A (root) E(fifth) G(flat seventh) B(9) f#(13) -- A13 (or just A7) (I'm not sure what #3 is supposed to be) a third is either minor or major after that it is a 4th(11th) and in any case there is no 4th present in the chord.
^^^ This ^^^
Chords 'can' have more than one name but it is all contextual and in this case, due to the progression - it's an A13. It's a functioning V chord. It is not an Em anything.
The wave function is collapsed.
Yes, I agree. A13 or A13sus2 seems fine with me.
Once I record the song. I'm planning to put up the lyrics and chords here for anyone who has an inclination to play. I could put the chord diagram up as well.
Yes, I saw it as a fancy V (A) chord that wants to resolve to a D chord.
Thanks again, guys, for the great analysis of the chord. I've learned something.
