@ Estelle, our music and guitar expert on HNN, (or any other guitar player here as well): please, can you tell me which chord this is on the first fret? (I guess, itís just a variation of one I already know.) Thanks!

Honestly, I don't know.

Sorry to answer that late, and that disappointly...

E A D G B F?

EGB are all part of the E minor chord. D would be there diminished 7th, F the diminished 9, and A the 11th. Eminor11dim7dim9 ???

Thanks for your answers, Estelle and Cass!

Iíve already checked this page here before and it doesnít show any chord for it either: http://www.all-guitar-chords.com/chord_name.php

I use it in a recently finished song and itís a switch between this chord and Dm (inter alia, of course).
I guess, I simply shouldnít write a song using a chord I don't know... Just your answer shows me Iím a totally self-taught amateur!
Itís certainly not that important, but as Iíve put the song down in my files now lately, I havenít known the name for this chord.

It's been a long time since I wrote or played music. Looks like you don't need to say diminished cause it's a minor scale and that's expected of the 7th.

So I'd say Em11dim9 or Em11flat9.

That should be a real dissonant sound.

Here is the same chord but without the flat 9th, ie with just another e at the top instead of an f. Just one away from your chord.

Feel free to build songs around whatever sounds right to you.

I tried several days ago to find out the name of the chord with two Chord Apps. Didn't get a result.
As Cass is an expert, I think nobody could explain better.
And yes, if a chord fits to your song and you feel it is right, known or not known chord, than it is the right one for your song!

I'm not an expert, but music theory was my strongest suit back in the day. Mostly because I was so bad at singing and playing music instruments by comparison.

Thanks again for your feedback!

Knowing what you know, you are definitely an expert, Cass! It sounded like you have learnt (or teach) it professionally.

Funnily, this chord really fits for my song (at least in my ears *g*).
For me, songwriting is a totally emotional thing. I havenít found a better way yet to let and bring out the messages of my soul. I let come, what comes; hardly ever censor or question it. Itís something I do just for myself.
Iíd never be good or confident enough to perform live like Estelle, Verena or Wojciech. But as said, itís more like a self-therapy; letting the creativity flow, something cathartic and perhaps healing.
