Sometimes old time tunes will have "chords" without a 3rd interval in them. When I transcribe a tune like that with chords above it, I write in (no 3rd) after the chord name. Like A (no 3rd). I've also used "A modal" before, but that's not strictly right, I don't think.



Is there any other way to indicate this?

Most folks just call it a "five" chord, meaning it's only the root and 5th. It would be denoted like A5 as the chord name.

That's good. Thanks.
