Ok, clue #1: this is an open position chord. :wink:

Hi Dan!

Congratulations on that first chord! :D

Let's see... I am pretty sure I forgot some note but could it be a C major chord? It sounds very familiar to me!

Thanks Nuno,

You are almost correct in your guess, however there's more to the chord yet. :wink:

That is a C Augmented Chord.

I don't know too much about chord theory, but if I'm to understand the definition of an augmented chord correctly, your guess is incorrect.

Nuno was on the right track, just needs one more extension.

Yea, you are right.

On giving a second listen to it, I realise that it is not a C Aug chord.

I don't know anything about theory or chord names...but I believe your chord is this one - X32100

Checking it out from PowerTab, it gives me the name - E/C.

I'm pretty sure I know what it is, thought I'd let someone else have a go - if I'm right it's the chord that comes between C and C7 in the verses of "Something" by George Harrison.....

That's a clue by the way - and here's another clue for you all, the Walrus was Paul....

(Actually that was a red herring.....the Walrus one I mean.....I should get more sleep....)

:D :D :D

Great clue Vic! :D The song in question is also in the ESD, so all someone would have to do is look that up and... bingo! :wink:

I didn't use the Vic's clue (now I'll go to the ESD page, as with the crosswords :wink:). I think the chord is Cmaj7 (major 7th, no dominant 7th). Could it be correct?

Cmaj7 it is! Fingering = x32000 You're up Nuno! :D

Yeah, that fingering, sorry, I forget to write it. I said it sounded familiar to me. This chord is also used in the intro of "Dust in the wind", as I've said in another thread, the first song I learnt to play. This chord is probably the first "non-usual" chord (major, minor, 7th) I learnt.

Nevertheless, I think the point must be for Vic, he guessed it this afternoon! :)

Nuno,

I think Vic was just being nice & trying to help me out with giving clues. I didn't ask for the correct fingering either - just gave it for reference. :wink: You named the chord, so I say you're up. :D Fire away!

Ok! :D

BTW, yesterday I was playing the chords of 'Something' and the progression is wonderful. Probably Harrison were the best musician in the group.

I like this game because I'm learning to use my "ears" and also a lot of new things to me. For example, some songs made by Harrison, I didn't know he also made 'Badge', one of my Clapton's favorites. Thanks! :D

Ok! Let's go: Guess that chord #2. Easy, for beginners, no clues.
