Thanks guys!

Sorry I'm a bit slow. I'm actually studying in Rome right now, and I figured that I couldn't spend a whole semester here without doing a little busking out in Piazza Navona, so I was out playing today, and I snapped my high E-string :x But, after some searching, a replacement was found! I also didn't bring my recording set up, but I rigged something up, so here it is:

(It's the one called 'Chord 1', just in case )

Good call on the name on that last chord Vic. I had the right notes in my head, but I forgot that when you're just stacking triads, that you only have to name the top note (and hence the 7 was a bit gratuitous); otherwise we'd have some pretty dang long names for chords! Dm13 is a bit cleaner than Dm7(add 9)(add 11)(add 13) 8)

Haha, I just stumbled across the game today, and I am definitely a fan of the idea, so I didn't want it to die out before I even tuned up

Ok! Could it be a D7 (x5453x)?

You're in the right part of the fretboard, for sure! But not quite the chord I'm looking for.

I've got this feeling that it is "Dm" played open

Nope, not Dm either. You guys have the D note nailed down, but the chord isn't quite so straightforward. As a little bit of a first hint, I'll tell you that there's a muted string in there, so two of the notes are a string apart.

Sorry Rodders! I've been slacking of late. But, you're getting closer...the two 3rd frets are right, but you have the wrong string muted and there are 4 notes. It's a chord from one of my favorite country songs. If you don't know my favorite country songs, well, you might start looking in "Low Places" And if you can't find it, try not to feel too 'diminished'!

That's the one! Well done! I was calling it G#dim7, but with diminished chords, you can name them with any note in the chord as the root (since all of the notes are separated by the same interval - a minor 3rd), so D is just as good. It's the 2nd chord in 'Friends in Low Places' by Garth Brooks...I always loved how much tension it added, though yeah, not a very standard chord...my apologies for picking such an oddball :D

This chord gets used a lot in blues rhythm guitar

Tricky one Rod - sounds like you're playing something like

E A D G B E
0 7 6 7 7 0

So with all the E's in there I'd be tempted to call it an E9th(no 5th)....you've got the root, third, flat 7th and 9th of the E scale.....

Yes? No?

BTW I'll give you an extra point for persistency and sheer bloody-mindedness for the last one....

:D :D :D

Vic, thanks for the extra points mate, I'll take al I can get. What do they add up to if you get enough ?

As for your guess, you are so close its unreal.

All I'm going to say is "Not E"
