I'm looking for the right word to figure out what I'm doing, I'm sure this is a normal music theory question but I don't know what to call it.
I can play the D major chord with the basic D shape, index finger on 4 string, middle finger 6th string and ring finger 4th string.
But I can also use a C shape with index on the 5th string 3rd fret, middle finger on 3rd string 4th fret and the ring finger on the first string 5th fret.
Both of these positions hit (D, F sharp and A) however these chords sound different to me, the second shape sounds more somber. I know some of the notes in the second shape are in different octaves then they are in the first shape. But although is it still a D major chord, it doesn't sound majory to me? The lower F sharp changes the sound of the whole chord to me and it feels strange calling it a major chord.
What would you call it when you play the same chord but with notes in different octaves?
