Thanks Dan!

Let me see... No, it isn't a Csus2 but you are very, very near! You only miss a note!

A clue? If I say it is used in a very famous Spanish 80's pop song... Ok! It appears in several famous songs by Pink Floyd, The Beatles... Really the chord is used alot.

Thanks CFB! :D

Any idea about the current chord?

Dan only miss a note, a string. The chord is in fact a suspended chord and it is used (almost) constantly because the difference between the minor chord and the suspended chord is only the pinky!

Nuno the nearest I can tell with my ears is XX5463 which is a G7 So I guess that cant be right either if its a sus chord as you said.
I cant find anything around Dans XX0533 that sounds remotely right. Maybe I'll check my tuning :lol:

But just to let you know, I haven't given up :wink:

Sorry, I didn't see your post this afternoon.

No, it isn't a G7 :?

Really I thought the chord was very easy...

Summarizing:
1 - It is a suspended chord.
2 - Dan only miss one note.
3 - Dan only miss a string.
4 - I had a doubt when Dan said his chord because my chord has two names and one of them is "Xsus2".
5 - I thing it is not the correct term but you must move only one finger between its "base" chord and the chord.
6 - I said a couple of bands but to use its base chord and this chord it is a recurrent resource.
7 - The base chord is...

I thought I nailed it before, but alas, I was wrong. :(

I think we need Vic's ears on this one! :D

Come on! It is very easy! :D

Dan, you only miss one note/string... perhaps you can "tune" your first answer! :D


PS. Sorry but I'm sligthly lost with the new interface. I don't know where the important info is, there are a lot of info shown simultaneusly...

go for it
TaylorR, congrats, you are right! :D

And we usually wait for an acknowledgment even when we are pretty sure we are aswering correctly. :wink:

The chord is Dsus4 [x x 0 2 3 3] = (D G A). Dan only missed the A tone in the third string. The pinky is used for the A note in the first string. When you change quickly from a Dm, even with a hammer-on/pull-off, it is when you get the typical sound.

TaylorR, sometimes the chord is also refered as Gsus2 or Gadd9(no3). I think it is an old and recurrent topic here (I mean, the sus4, the sus2 and the add9 chords). I call it Dsus4 but when Dan said Csus2 I remembered it could be called in a different way as a sus2 chord.

Now it is easy to find songs with this chord. I'm sure you all know a lot of them. As I said The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and a lot of bands used it. The Spanish song is Déjame by Los Secretos. Great group and it is very special song in the recent music here (there was many great groups and music in the 80's). Unfortunately the original singer and composer passed away by the drugs. Now his brother (the Rickenbaker player) is the new vocalist.

Hate to ask....are we allowed to play this game if we can't record a chord? I really want to step into this.
