    I'll play around with it. I like the sound of it. Maybe I can move that shape around. It sounds really close to playing

    Isn't that also Am7, which also goes well with a D7? (think of Down by the River by Neil Young, at least the way I play it badly.)

    NOT funny at all. You put the fingering on the neck on that website and it will tell you what chord it is.
    Chordbook calls it an E #9 based on your description of the fingering. :)
