    Sounds like one of those "Demolished" chords they use in jazz ?

    or..in Blues, Jazz, and some rock. Hendrix used a diminished chord movement in at least one of his songs. I found a huge complex chord in an extremely heavy, high gain thing I made up. It is fun to see how different people try to analyze it. I play by ear. A fellow yesterday called it an em7b5sus11, which would be a 4 chord in the work. I consider it to be a 5 chord with an even more complex naming. In the end, it doesn’t matter what it is called because it works....and...imho, we don’t need any limitations as to what a jazz chord is versus a rock chord.....just as I don’t call any certain guitar a jazz guitar. One of the meanest ‘rock’ guitars I have been around created fantastic jazz tones....when one played in the manner of a ‘jazz’ player. The guitar was a Robin Machete....a solid body take off of the Gibson Modern series with very hot pickups and a Floyd Rose....tone for days!

    Mick Goodrick harmonized scale example,

    -1---3---5---6---8--10--11
    -3---4---8--------6----6--10
    -5---2---8--------7----5--12

    Yea Dm7, that fingering is way too difficult and pointless to do though in the greater context.

    Chords are all about context. You can't just put up three notes and get a concrete, meaningful answer as to what chord it is.

    What key are you in? What are the other chords in the song? What is the melody doing? The harmony?

    I like it though. Never too difficult if you can stretch those fingers.

    lol....it is a stretch. If you want to make it difficult, add the low F on the low E string.

    THe guitar was purposely designed so that you never had to stretch your finger more than a perfect 4th though. You would be better off just playing this up the neck. Same notes.

    just a helpful suggestion....if you play with your finger right next to the fret, you can play with less pressure, achieve more accurate intonation, and have better tone and sustain.

    Even a 4th on F is a stetch. But who plays rock and roll in F ?

    Though he was tuned down a 1/2 step, Hendrix played played 'Wind Cries Mary' in F.
    'Hey Jude' is in F ... ;)

    Well if you don't give it context it's doing the best it can.

    The software in question could probably get it right if it was modified to take a progression.

    i meant rock and roll as in rockabilly. But the 15xxxx is a the same kind of strech, though i tend to play that one at the 8th fret, because my fingers are small. That s my excuse at least.

    Girl With the Faraway Eyes is in F, and some other Stones songs I can’t think of right now:lol:

    Just piling on:) And waiting to see what kind of convoluted fingering @BigDaddyLH comes up with...

    If you insist! Why not end on a jazzy FMaj7(add#11): x8.10.9.10.7

    To play that B on the 7th fret, reach around the bottom of the neck and play it with your thumb!
