Hey, guitar-knowledgeable people!
There's a specific chord shape I'm seeing in many songs I like, and I'd like to be able to name it correctly. Only thing is, when I use online chord namers or such, they usually blurt out some add12 and sus4 one after the other, which make little sense to me and are a mouthful, really.
Would you be able to help me out?
The shape is basically the one at the very start of Paranoid Android by Radiohead:
I've also seen it other positions:
There are sometimes some subtle variation, such as 200230 -- well, subtle for my newbie fingers, but might give the chord an entirely different for what I know :)
Thank you for your wisdom.
