I have a nice chord progression going (am, mystery chord, bm, fmaj, emaj) but I have no idea what this one's called. Wondering if anyone can analyze the notes and see what might be called (if they don't know offhand) and maybe even can tell me why the chord progression sounds nice. At least, I think it does tongue.gif

[edit] Sorry, I suck at making tabs tongue.gif

Well, I think you can, it can probably be called a number of things. I'm not sure. I'm hoping so tongue.gif

That's only two notes in your chord, F and A.
Or did you mean?

e |---|-X-|---|---|
B |---|---|-X-|---|
G |---|-X-|---|---|
D |---|---|---|---| (x)
A |---|---|---|---| (x)
E |---|---|---|---| (x)
frt 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 |


Either way that should make an Fmaj. Look, same formation as the Dmaj from fret twom three frets higher makes F and when I play it it sounds like Fmaj too.

If you really only meant for the e and B string to be in it you have to figure which chords with an A and and F fits your chord progression.

More than likey its how MickeM Explains it, cause you need 3 notes for a chord and it has the same formation as Dmaj, thats the one that males the most sense to me unsure.gif

laugh.gif Yeah I told you I was terrible with making tabs. If I read that as a tab normally I would play it like that but writing it I didn't even realize.

It sounds quite different than fmaj to me, though.

The difference in sound is probably because Dmaj has the root note D in it twice as below:

e---2---
B---3--- (D)
G---2---
D---0--- (D)
A-------
E-------


And when you drag it down to Fmaj it only contains 1 Root note:

e---5---
B---6--- (F)
G---5---
D-------
A-------
E-------


If you are having trouble hearing it get someone else to play Fmaj:

e---1--- (F)
B---1---
G---2---
D---3--- (F)
A---0---
E---0---

Then play your Fmaj over it and listen to the similarity. This is actually a great exercise for learning to listen to new chords such as barres and especially Open 5's and such.
