Probably a stupid answer in response to a....

A, A#, B, C, C#, D, D#, E, F, F#, G, G#

I would say the most common are the 2 note "power chord" (which aren't really chords because 3 notes in unison qualifies a chord)

But basically the C scale.

I didn't think it was a stupid question. But oh well. Also i was talking in terms of acoustic mainly.

well a two note power chord would be the 1st and 5th of a scale, thus it would be a 5 chord

like F5, B5, etc.

and i would say barre chords for acoustic and early punk (romanes)

edit - also the common chords i use are in the songs like "wonderwall" - oasis (but uses a capo), and "elderly woman behind a counter in a small town" or something like that - by pearl jam, very happy chords with a kind of sad undertone if you play them in the right order

Not trying to be rude. But it's sort of a question that no one will ever have a real answer to. But common instruments are in the scale of C major, which is
C = 1 = I
D = 2 = II
E = 3 = III
F = 4 = IV
G = 5 = V
A = 6 = VI
B = 7 = VII
C = 8 = VIII (same as I)
if that looks confusing you just think of it as all the chords on a standard tuned guitar that can be played open (with the exception of B) and they're the barre & power "chords" that have the dots on them where the dominant note is.

It's true! But they always say a chord is "3 or more notes in unison" but I guess they still give these 'fake' chords chords name haha. But yeah they're the 5th, so good point!

yah i think they fall into the same vein as octave chords, the 1st and the 8th (suprisingly i've seen those mostly in metalcore songs). which is to say that they are a chord since they are the notes in the scale even if its not a tradition major, minor, deminished, augmented, chord. although i think a 6 chord is only 2 notes i'll have to check

Depends on the genre. In Irish trad it is D which is easy to play around on fiddle, tin whistle, flute and accordion. Or so they tell me. Guitar blues tends towards E and A for the same reason.

I would say those are the fundamentals. There are millions of songs that use only the chords I mentioned in my first post. I would even go as far as to say 80% of Rock/Pop and derivatives use only those chords. I learned a lot of chords from learning Incubus songs. I swear Mikey makes up chords. They can get pretty whacky but they're cool nonetheless. But I would say you know enough to sing/play/songwrite from what you said.

If you know chord construction and progressions then you don't need to learn chords because you know how to construct them as and when you need them.

People are right, it was a stupid question.

In your eyes maybe. Your the only one that thinks so. Its ppl like you that makes it so ppl don't learn anything. I simply asked a question ,cause that's what forums are for is fo asking questions. Because im learning chords. AND i wanted to see which chords are used more so i can fig out which to learn first. That where more necessary.
But ty for your comment. Just makes me try harder. Also ppl didnt think it was cause they didnt understand the question> basically your the only one.
