    I just got the nice flovor of chord A by moving little fingure to 7th fret B string.

    A* = 575675

    How can i symbolize it?

    Using this i formed the following progression that sounds superb to me...

    A, A*, D, A

    Strumming...

    down rest up up down up

    Hi Amit,
    In which order have you mentioned A*, is it EADGBE or other way round?

    Sometimes 2 different chords have the same notes....only difference lies in roots, approach etc.

    eg...a C major 7th chord has the following notes...

    C G E B


    However....3 of these notes G E and B together make an E minor chord. So a C major 7th is the same as an Em/C

    Actually it is F#m7b9/A chord. The other name for this chord will be A13.
    Notes are :
    A(Root)
    E
    G
    F#
