    Exclamation Mystery Chord

    Well I've been playing the uke for a year now and I'm trying to learn this song and writing a tab for it. But I can't seem to find this chord here:

    A|0
    E|3
    C|4
    G|3

    Does anyone know what the name of this chord is? Thanks. =)

    Sorry Dude. I don't think you have a chord there. I went to this link and placed markings where you noted......no chord comes out.

    Make sure you have Tenor-C tuning selected to the right hand side.

    A lot of it depends on context. What key is the song in? On first sight I would call it some flavor of Edim.

    My best stab is kind of Gmin6+9/E... with no 5th?

    I can figure out other sort-of-possibles, but they're all a bit weird with more than one missing tone... no root for example.
    And whether the blood be highland, lowland or no,
    And whether the skin be black or white as the snow,
    Of kith and of kin we are one, be it right, be it wrong,
    As long as our hearts beat true to the lilt of a song.

    Sure it's not 0343? That's a G#maj7 (according to the reverse chord finder).

    But 3430 - might be a D#7b9th (2323 is D7b9) or F#7b9 (since 2323 is also F7b9).

    I would say an A7b9... you have the root, the b9 the 5 and the b7

    Possibly. But there's no third, which is crucial (more so than the fifth).

    If I had to call it anything, I'd say it was an Edim/A, just because that's the simplest. But Seeso's right about context. Knowing the other chords would be a big help in naming it.

    My inital thoughts where how it was just like an Ebdim moved up but leaving the A open.
    So if I was gonna name it, I would also just call it a Edim/A.

    Thank you all. I was going online a lot and trying to find that chord and it looks like the Ebdim. But the chords around it are G, D7, Am7, C7. I don't know it that changes the chords but I wrote it down as such.

    Another question haha. I wanted to know what chords these are also:
    A|2
    E|2
    C|2
    G|4

    A|2
    E|3
    C|4
    G|2

    A|2
    E|3
    C|3
    G|2

    Thanks for the help.
