Well done Rodders, it is indeed my favourite chord, the C#m :D

Guess you are up again!

How embarrassing! :oops: So way off. Turns out it's a C#min? ....well somewhere between a Bmin and Cmin. Your mandolin is a tad out of tune...or is it just me?

Rodders: yours sounds like some sort of Amaj7

3rd Edit: A/Ab or A flatted 8th?

I'm going to guess Ab (4th fret E-major shaped barre?)

Your mandolin is a tad out of tune...or is it just me?


I don't have a mandolin......... that was my acoustic guitar. If you listend to the hi-fi version it made the notes sound much higher for some reason (as I said in the post with the link in it) > that might explain it? My guitar is in tune (far as I can tell! :D) and I checked it with my tuner and an online reference before I recorded as well.

Yup. That would explain it. Don't expect me to read. It takes me several hours just to two finger type these responses. :lol:

BTW Pete, you are very close but there is something you're missing. There is an added note which gives the chord an airy quality

Hmm, had another listen, best I can come up with is the Ab (466544) - just can't hear that additional note!

Maybe Rodder's can get it (he seems to be good at this! 8) )

Is it an Ab(add9) - 468544? Sounds like the chord the Police use at the beginning of "Every Breath You Take" to me....

:D :D :D

I don't know the name (and I'm really not sure about this anyway!) but I'll guess a D-major barred at the 5 fret (555787)?

I'm pretty sure I can hear the high e-string at the 7th fret, the lower notes are a bit harder for me to hear.

No, it's not a major chord....

Sounded pretty clear to me when I played it back - I always test out links before I submit. Did you try hi-fi or lo-fi? The hi-fi sounds slightly clearer, though there's not much in it....

:D :D :D
