All I know is that if UG were a prison, all of us will either be dead, a prison bitch, or a dead prison bitch.

Use the search feature and post in one of the other hundred threads we've had on this subject.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
my favourite chord is E5

You are not your job.
You're not how much money you have in the bank.
You're not the car you drive.
You're not the contents of your wallet.
You're not your fucking khakis.
You're the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world.
My favorite chord is just an open E major chord. Nothing fancy, but the voicing of it, the richness of it, it's just the nicest sounding chord to me.

Inversely, D major as an open chord is the worst in my opinion. Too high, too weak, it doesn't have enough low end. Even as a D/F#.
D minor, the saddest of all keys

Yeah well in special UG land chords = noob, scales = intermediate and modes = advanced. Most users are trying to finish the game on hard because then you get the trophies for noob and intermediate difficulties upon completion anyway.

Pffffffft schematics

Although i guess the OP will have to get used to reading them if he's going to buy a bugera..
Quote by gregs1020

along with fire escape routes...

^ the hendrix chord is a 7#9

im all about that X bMaj9Aug5Add13 :P

Really though, Major7s with a flat 5 sound really cool.
Minor 9th chords. All of them.
Quote by BigRudy
I disagree Slipknot is more technical than Necrophagist and more brutal than Suffocation, that's why I do hardcore dances to it with my 14 year old friends.
Italian augmented 6th chord.

Damned if I could find anywhere to use it in a non-orchestra song though.
His death, which happen'd in his berth,
At forty-odd befell:
They went and told the sexton, and
The sexton toll'd the bell

D major (easy, but sounds awesome) and E9


the first one you have to kinda arpeggiate it. I'm at no higher then an intermediate level of theory so im not all that confident in naming it. Powertab labels it Em/G and its second guess is G6.

the second one im also not very confident on naming but powertab guesses C/A or Em7. i generally play this one arpeggiated similair to a part in metallica's call of ktulu.
