I like M7 and m7, although a little cliche.
I also like Sus2 chords. I think they are the best.
add6 chords are very "Green hill happy" if you know what i mean.

One sonority that I think is really beautiful and totally underutilized is 7sus4(add3). A good way to voice it is a normal 7sus4 chord with the added 3 on top (doing the opposite - a normal 7 chord with the sus4 on top - would give you a nasty sounding b9 and obscure a lot of the chord sound). Doing this makes you hear the 3 as a tension ("tension 10" if you will) and the sus4 as a basic chord tone. Alternatively, you can place the 3 and sus4 right next to each other, which will give you a b2 rub, which can be very nice sometimes. Here's a basic example, spelled from the bottom up:
D7sus4(add3)
D G C F#

A Form 2, Drop 2 voicing will give a similar result with a b2 interval. 1st inversion maj7 chords.

Code:
---8 -8-6 -5-9 -9-7 -7- ---

I personally like stuff with lots of open strings, something like

Code:
e ---0----0----0--------- b ---8----3----3--------- G ---0----0----0--------- D ---0----0----0--------- A ---7----3----5--------- E ---0--------------------


Those being Em7, Cadd2 and Dsus2sus4... I think.

This is my secret weapon. I use instead of octaves for weird results :

EADGbe:x7896x ( intervals R,b5,8,b9 )

This is a more classy chord.

Am(maj7)add 9
EADGBe:x06557
