chord #1 :  D9/F#

#2  : Cmaj9/E    ( since the fret marker is in the 8th fret)

#3  :  D9sus

Hi Paul, I would be glad to join in the chord naming but I really need to view these grids in musical notation.  However I don't want to burden you with more work just for this purpose.  I do hope many others will take advantage of these discussions as this is something Ted would definitely encourage.  Paul, thank you so much for doing this for everyone.  All the best, Barbara

Paul, Tim, Kontiki,
I understand your lament for more contributors.  I suspect there are many of us who, while doing our level best to absorb this dialogue of yours, are not yet able to be a part of it.  Understand this, though; while we are not part of the dialogue be comforted by the fact that we're being greatly enriched by your monologue - 'your' half of 'our' conversation.  As I've told Tim, I look forward to the day when my mind will be working through the theory necessary to come up with things like these examples you've provided for us.  I also want to thank the three of you (and of course Ted, Barbara and the Forum) for providing this look at our desired future.  Thanks!

Mark

Mark,
Please feel free to participate - even if you don't understand this material.  Some of it is complex; some simple.  Some of these chords can be viewed from many different angles, and often times there's no one "right" answer to the name. 
Jump in - don't be afraid, we don't bite!
I guess this applies to any and all "lurkers" on this forum.
Thanks for the input and feedback. 
--Paul

Paul,   What is a "lurker"? It sounds very ominous.   Maybe when I have a bit more energy I will transcribe the latest grid and add my two cents (for what it's worth).   Barbara    (I wish we had more "little face" options)

Barbara,
Here is how Wikipedia defines it:
In Internet culture, a lurker is a person who reads discussions on a message board, newsgroup, chatroom, file sharing or other interactive system, but rarely or never participates actively. Research indicates that "lurkers make up over 90% of online groups"

Am11/G     D13/F#     Cadd9/E   D13sus  (depends on what optional notes we choose)   and finally  Cm9 

Paul, you should put disclaimers on some of these chord charts saying "don't try these at home, kids"  or "this site is not responsible for any tendonitises"   I find myself holding my guitar more an more in a vertical position, the way Ted does in some of his videos.


By the way, to all who would like to participate but feel they don't have the level: questions are also a form of participating. There is no such thing as a stupid question on this forum. It seems to me that Ted's Spirit was all about helping and teaching all levels, so it is a moral imperative for those of us who would try to emulate him to help if we can.  I'd be glad to give any humble help I can.

It's a little ambiguous, but i see them in the context of G major:

Am7/E  D7sus  Gsus/C   Bm7

Kontiki,
I agree with your names for the first and fourth chords.
For the second one I'd call it a D13/11 or D13(sus4).
For the third chord, I'd prefer to think if it as a Cadd9 (no 3rd),
making it a ii-V-IV-iii progression.
That's my 2 cents!
--Paul

Paul, I agree on the D13sus  (I overlooked the 13 )  as for the Cadd9(no 3rd) i was also thinking that but i was thinking more of a ii-V-I-iii  progression

All right...ready to move on to #5:
Okay, the first chord here is a killer!  Notice the extra fret lines Ted drew in.  If you can play that comfortably you're a worthy recipient of the biggest guitar stretch chord award.
Try playing that on a Strat slung at knee level with your left thumb wrapped around the neck!!
