Guitar players, what's your coolest chord?

The one that feels GREAT to my fingers and ears is any barred dominant seven with the added sharp 9 (barred in the E-major position).

It's such a cool power chord.

E power chord, fret 7 on the A string. I don't know why, but I just LOVE to use that. My favorite progression is a simple EFG metal progression, at least lately. It's about the heaviest one there is. I especially like this one (all 16th notes)

E E F E E F E F E E F E G G F F

I just love the way that sounds, played really fast, with lots of distortion.

A simple D (232) - It's the saddest of all chords.

I guess it would have to be a barre chord with dropped D tuning.
E.g. 224400. chunky on the bridge pickup, muddy on the neck.

I like all flat five substitutions just to have a moment to rip out of the norm with the coinciding lydian flat seventh scale.

I'm a big fan of jazz, and I find myself using 13th a lot.

For instance Bb13 = 6x6788
Really good exercise for you power chord players out there too

That's an E7#9 chord.Also listen to Hendrix's "Foxy Lady". The E7#9 is followed by a G major and an A major chord. Oooh,..Foxy Lady.

Man, all the years I have been playing guitar I haven't bothered to learn any technical stuff. I dont even really buy sheet music that would help me learn chords and whatnot... I do have some stuff that I will share though...


e x x x
B 8 10 8
G 5 9 7
D x x x
A 7 x x
D 7 7 5


I think these three go well together.

Heavy Distortion, E power chord starting on open e. Low, powerful, easy to hit, gets the job done.
