Here, I took a picture too, it's part of my chord progression for a song I'm making and I can't find a name anywhere. Maybe this is the chord that will make me the next treasure planet, which is only one notch down from Queen itself!

That was sarcasm.
But seriously, what is this chord?

It's an inversion of an E minor 7th chord (or a G 6th)

So what could I call it? Em7? G6?

Em7 or G6/E. Both names work, so it's up to you. Functionally it makes more sense to have it as Em7, thus forming a I>ii>IV, V>vi>I or VII>i>III progression.



John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Methinks Em7(add 3rd)

Definitely an Em7th type chord.

Em7, pure and simple.

Sebastian's right, in that you could technically call it a G6/E, but that would be pointless. In this context, as you are playing the open strings (which you need to include in the tab by the way, as they are fundamental to the chord) you have the bottom E in the chord, which clearly defined the chord in the context of E.

So, Em7.
