I guess is not a chord...however im not sure...so letīs wait until someone else can say if it is or not a chord and if it is, which is it.

it's a G maj7#5 (Major 7 #5 chord)

check out the chord name tool up top...it makes me look smarter than I am

I wouldn't say it's a Gmaj7+ just because it has the notes.
Perhaps with heavy distortion it may sound good to you. That's all that matters.
I'd call it a B/F# b6

Hey Joe, I'm confused. why is this not a Gmaj7#5 or at least an arpeggioated (not sure what the right word would be) or inverted?

I understand that the chord starts on a f# but according to one of your lessons that would make it an inverted chord right?

I could see not hitting he open G and then it becomes a B chord (inverted right?) but as long as the g is there it's an gmaj7#5

how do you come up with the B/F# b6?

I'm asking because I'm confused and would like calcification and not because I'm getting some chord note theory nazi.

Thats ok, if you remember, I also talked about why we invert chords.
It's about voicing, this would voice as a B chord not a G chord, thats the only reason.
Also, we tend to not let a maj7 end in it's root.

Hi

In my humble opinion that is the second inversion of Dm# b11. I think its a 4&6 chord.

um, from my knowledge, you can't have a "sharp flat" anything, unless there was a typo?

Probably youre right, I am not very used to this encoding. What I actually want to mean is that G is the dim 11th of the tonic D#.
Anyway looks a little weird but sounds ok 2me.
