Re: what's this chord please?

Well, it's an F with a C in the bass and no 3rd!
OR
It's a Csus4 with no 5th!
The problem with chord names is it depends to some extent on context!
If you added an A (5th fret top e string) then definitely F with a C in the bass, if you add a G (3rd fret top e string) then Csus4.
Sometimes these ambiguous chords are extremely effective!

Re: what's this chord please?

i think because of the natural perfect consonance between I and V this chord (without other chord tones to mark it's inclination) would be an F5 (2nd inversion) or an F power chord for all you rockers out there. though, as jim said it's all about context.

F. Or, you could easily play in in place of a F and know one would know the difference.

(If "C" is the tonal center you hear.) I'd call it Cminor add 11... which is C minor w/ the add fourth.. the thrid is present so its not a "sus"/suspension.

You have to tab the chord on the tab staff first and then start the chord tool and it will tell you what chord it is. You are getting the buzz because you don't have any chords for it to identify.

thats my main thought too. I can kind of see the Csus4 (since the 5th is a popular note to leave out of chords as you get away from the major/minor and 7ths that i consider your bread and butter chords) But I tend to not worry about trying to name a "chord" unless it actually has 3 notes hehe. And in this case I conclude its the F power with 5th in the bass :P

I've seen this many times recently. Is this something new they have started to teach in the US?

Here we still use 2 and 4 for sus chords, and only sus chords. There are never any add4. If it's an added fourth note, it's add11. Never add2, always add9. Chords are built up by triads. Sus chords are released back to the "normal" triad chord*. And 4/6 tension chords released to 3/5 are still very common. I don't know the right terms in English, but if you know what I mean, you know what I mean.

*(Sure, not so much the truth in modern music. But theory is theory. )
