That is an E7 chord, i.e. E-G#-B-D.

Indeed, E7 unless the G# must be the root. But if you didn't know that, BIAB has a GREAT feature called MIDI Chord Detection.

If you have a MIDI keyboard, select MIDI Chord Detection from the Window menu in BIAB and play the chord notes. The program will give you alternatives for the name of the chord. Most of the time, outside of complex jazz chords, the answer is pretty straightforward. Unfortunately, with the voicing you gave, assuming building up from G# to D to E to B on top, it thinks this is E4/G#

ps Despite failing on this chord, this is easily one of my most favorite features in BIAB.

If you do not have a MIDI keyboard, I can give you a link or two to online sites that will find the chord. They add the key of the song, which gives context. In the key of E, your chord is E7. But if G# is the root AND the key, then you get weird stuff like G#dim add(#5). Good luck with that. cool

monsieur patate,

Outside of Band-in-a-Box PG Music offers a software program called the +++ Guitar Chord +++ and a similar product for keyboards called the +++ Piano Chord Dictionary +++. Both programs display either a fretboard or keyboard. Enter a chord name and the finger positions display or perform a reverse look-up by selecting finger positions and the chord name will display.

Another way to find the answer is to use the phrase, "reverse chord look" as a search term. If you have a smart phone both Ios and Android systems have apps available.

Matt, that SongMaven site looks like it could be very useful. The ChordSounder is a nice quick way to try replacing the root with the 3rd or 5th in the bass, in addition to just hearing the different extensions.

And today I'm dusting off my 5-string banjo to lay down a track on a tune that a friend sent me. Since it's been a while, the banjo scale and chord selectors will come in handy. Thanks for the link!

Ron
