A#/D (Cx) Chord (A Sharp Over D) – 10 Ways to Play on the Guitar

The A#/D chord is an A# Major chord, with the D (the 3rd) as the bass note. The 3rd of A# is actually the note Cx (‘C double sharp’). However, because Cx is harmonically the same as D, it’s easier to refer to the note as D (even though it’s technically incorrect).

The chord is also referred to as A# over D, or A# ‘slash’ D, or simply, A sharp with a D in the bass.

Technically, the A# Major chord with the D in the bass is a first inversion A sharp Major chord.
