I'm somewhat new to more complex chords. I found this chord on YouTube which consists of G F# A D (from lowest to highest notes). The person said it is GMaj9 chord, but actually it misses the 3rd, which per all theory I read, cannot be a major chord.
So some guesses:
- If I count G as root - then it has 1 - 7 - 9 - 5, I did not find how to call such a chord
- If I treat G as an added bass note, then the F#-A-D looks like an inversion of D chord - so perhaps this can be denoted as D/G chord? Can one add another bass note to an already inverted chord?
- Alternatively, if I still consider G as bass note, but treat F# A D as a non-inverted chord, it comes to something like F#minb6/G
Are any of these directions correct, are there other better options?
