Can somebody tell me please what I am doing if I play Gmaj7 fourth

inversion and instead of the G on the fifth fret I leave the finger

off i.e play another D. So the notes are F sharp, B and D. Nice

sounding chord but what is it?

Sorry. I meant fourth variation, not inversion.

If you put those notes into "chord name" it comes up as Bm

Thanks Phip. Im really confused now! I just went upstairs and played

around using Bm instead after a D7. Although it doesn't sound wrong,

it's not quite as sharp sounding as the Gmaj7 chord without the G

note. No problem for me on guitar of course but what do I tell the

keyboard player to do if you get my meaning.

Well, since the notes you're playing are still part of Gmaj7, if the keyboard doesn't change what he's doing (assuming he's playing Gmaj7) you shouldn't really have a problem. Of course, this will mean that it will still sound like D7 to Gmaj7. If you wanted it to go D7 to Bm, then you should have the keyboard player use Bm or notes from it as well. I guess that's the simplest way to solve it. I'm sure there are other ways.

Can't I just ask the keyboard player to play Gmaj7 without the G note.

Sorry to be a pain, but this is one of my own compositions and I want

to get it right. You see I an not really happy with either the Gmaj7

or Bm chords.

While if he's playing Gmaj7 without a G then it's not Gmaj7 anymore, it's Bm. People aren't going to hear a maj7 there if there's no G. See what I'm saying? Gmaj7 without the G IS Bm.

^ Yep, when you get rid of the root, then you're changing the chord completely. Try having the keyboard player play around with different voicings of the B minor chord to get it as close as possible to how it sounded the first time you played it on guitar.

Thanks GRX for the advice. I think playing around with the Bm chord

on the keyboard is the answer.
