A 5

Some nice ringy A 5 chords - A 5 = A ( root ) + E ( 5th )

The second example shown below ( although a bit tricky to play ) has exactly the same note [ E ] on the top three strings which can give a great effect when fingerpicked.
It also sounds good strummed.
The bottom string marked x wouldn't normally be played but technically this note [ E ] could be in the chord.

See the tab for more examples of A 5.
