Part 2 (sorry about the break, the site has a max # of chars.)
However, if you write all the present notes out on a staff, it's actually an Asus add1and5. But that's only if you want to have fun and "get technical"
Thanks for the mental workout; I hadn't had any reason to try to remember my theory in a LONG time. It was fun! Are you a music student, or just a well informed enthusiast?
Hey, with regards to your post on Word of God Speak: "An Asus chord is different from an A2. If you want to get technical the A2 chord is actually called an 'A add 9' chord. A2 is just less letters and numbers, easier to write down."
According to music theory, an Asus and an A2 are the same, because to make a suspended chord, you drop the 3rd by a whole step, which makes it a 2nd chord. An A4 is actually an augmented chord, which you get by raising the 3rd a half step, getting a 4th chord. By this token an Asus4 would actually be a variation that has both the 2 and the 4 in the chord. And a regular A chord has the complete A major (A,C,and E) in order, not spaced across several octaves occuring on the B,G, and E strings, so it would be an A add 1&5. This means that an A2 is only an A add9 if you make a jump and consider the added 1 of the chord to be the root instead of an added element to give an already complete chord more depth.
