So for an 11th sound you could have G9sus = R 4 (11) 5 b7 9 or F/G which is R 4 (11) b7 9. If you see 11th written somewhere don't play the 11th and 3rd in the same chord :lol:
So what I'm playing all-the-time in DADGAD and call m11 is then a m7add11? Or a m11add3?

No it's a minor 11th as you thought. You can play the 3rd and 4th (11th) in a minor chord. R b3 5 b7 9 11.

'add' to me means 'skip over the chord tones in between'. So the chord in your username I would call Fmaj9. You don't need the 'add' because it has all the chord tones up to and including its name -- R 3 5 7 9

Fadd9 is R 3 5 9 and add9 chords are the sound of Every Breath You Take or Message In A Bottle by the Police. Contrast this with a dominant 9th R 3 5 b7 9 which is the sound of a James Brown vamp. :)
The ultimate hidden truth of the world is that we make it, and could just as easily make it differently.

Given that no-one (well, a vanishingly small minority) is actually going to play your username I think you can keep it. :lol:

I have no idea what was there, and have to say from reading this thread cannot understand what is point.

* If your problem is that you can't serve video files because of disk space / network band with limitations, how about uploading to youtube or some other public video service?
* if problem is some copyright problems with commercial stuff, what about making demo with some CC stuff, so that you can freely share it.

In this form this is annoying.

{/quote]

it was a youtube jam-video as edited by myself for my own use to serve as example for anyone interested in improved-service jam-videos.
and have to say from reading this thread cannot understand what is point.
The point (of the thread if that's what you mean) is MY point i.e. that I want and expect much more from jam videos than a picture with a musical track. At that level one might as well just stick with mps'3. I don't have the competence to make the musical content of jam-tracks but the rest should be like a dynamic cheatsheet. So I improve existing jam-videos for my own use by adding static and dynamic graphic content, added-value so to speak.
* If your problem is that you can't serve video files because of disk space / network band with limitations, how about uploading to youtube or some other public video service?
Youtube used to be OK and I do have an account but they in their wisdom kinda lost me when they decided to make video removal impossible. Now the video you want removed just goes invisible, not my cup of tea, nor do I want to dilute my video set there which is not just about music.
* if problem is some copyright problems with commercial stuff, what about making demo with some CC stuff, so that you can freely share it.

What's CC? I understand that a dead link can be annoying, my apologies. Actually for this kind of narrow-interest and essentially learning or training material about jam-videos (rather than those videos themselves), the best place for them would be on the forum hosting server but there, depending on the forum, usually total denial or very limited space is the rule.

The problem isn't so much the copyright, Nick Neblo's tracks I think are very liberally handled, the main problem is that my web server has limited space and even if it had unlimited space I would not want to spend eons trying to maintain thousands of files so there again there would be a countdown, maybe not as short as just a couple of days.

CC is probably https://creativecommons.org in this case

and it would be helpful not put your reply to quote inside the quote [brackets] :roll:

10-4 on the CC, I know what Creative Commons is

Noted about the quotes, so how do I reply to itemized quotes as one would do on usenet? Just touching a web forum makes my blood boil :evil:

Tavasti: here's a really destroyed quality short video of the topic in general. It's small enough so I'll likely leave it up there at least for months to come, part of the ideas came for here, form merlyn I think

It looks like you did it correctly but had a typo where you had "{/quote]" instead of "[/quote]"
