Example 2


A/B is my name for this chord, reflecting this ‘stacking’ of notes (low to high: B A C# E). However, it could also be called B11, taking B as our ‘official’ root, rather than an alternativ­e bass note. In this context, we would have B as root, A as b 7th, C# as 9th, and E as the 11th. However, note the lack of 3rd (D#) and 5th (F#), which are sometimes omitted in extended voicings.
