    7-7-10-7-8-7

    Its some variant of a minor 7th, too lazy to figure it out right now. Julian Rodriguez of Elitist uses this too...a favorite of mine. :shred:

    I'm assuming that's in a drop tuning, since I use that chord (and a few variations) pretty frequently. In drop D, that's

    7 7 10 7 8 7
    A E C D G B

    Now with scale degrees
    r 5 3 4 7 9
    A E C D G B



    So Am11, since the 4 is far enough above the root note that it's well, not a 4.


    I thought the Satan chord was

    D-2
    A-2
    E-1
    ?

    This is my favorite chord at the moment. Can I get some help naming it? I believe it's an F#m9add4? It has the minor 7th(E), so I believe that the G# qualifies it as a 9th, but I don't know what to call the B. I have a third in there, so it's not a suspended 4th right?

    E-0
    B-0
    G-2
    D-6
    A-4
    E-2

    Yes, yes, but that's just a tritone, "diabolus en musica", which is different. Supposedly in some religious groups, there is a claim that certain chords are not allowed, since they "conjure up demons" (which is silly, regardless of one's beliefs in anything supernatural, it IS just a group of notes, after all...). The chord I was referring to is a maj7b5. Actually, there's no third...so I'm not entirely sure what it's called, then. But yes. Perhaps I was misinformed.

    Here's a few. If you'd like, I can PM you a list of all the rather large Haunted-Shores-esque chords I like to use.

    Here's a sampling.
    Assuming drop D
    7 B
    8 G
    9 E
    10 F
    7 E
    7 A
    That takes out the 11th, leaving us with a m9 chord.

    10 D
    8 G
    7 D
    10 C
    7 E
    7 A
    That one puts more emphasis on the 11th, and also has a 7th.

    When you throw in open notes, you have more possibilities as well.

    10 D
    10 A
    12 G
    10 C
    0 A
    0 D
    I'm not actually sure what that one's called...D7sus4? D7add11?


    8 C
    10 A
    7 D
    7 A
    0 A
    x
    Amadd11


    x
    8 G
    9 E
    8 Bb
    12 A
    8 Bb
    I don't know what that one's called either.

    Love my major and minor 9ths. Maybe a little too much.
