Alright, I've written a pretty nifty little guitar riff on my acoustic. It goes like this.

Capo 2nd
e|-----------------------------------------------|
B|----------3-----------3---------3----------3-|
G|-------0-----------0---------0----------0----|
D|----4-----------4---------4----------4-------|
A|-5-----------3----------2---------0----------|
E|-----------------------------------------------|

What would be a good chord/chords for rhythm to play behind this?

i like it as a rhythm by itself, sorta to the tune of naked as we came by iron and wine. you could even extend the bass to the bottom string.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

i'll try that. not bad.
the thing is tho, i'd like to sing with it (when i get some lyrics written) but this riff is pretty hard to play, so i'd like have chords while i sing and use this a refrain. you know?
but i will try ur idea too.

AMaj7/E-- AMaj11/D --AMaj7/C#--AMaj9/B

Those would be the chords in standard with the capo moving the tuning.
I'd say just play each four notes as a chord to strum.

3 on B hold with your middle fiinger, 4 on D hold with your ring finger and you never have to lift those. Then 5 on A hold with pinky, then you should do the 3 on A with your index then just slide the index down to the 2 on A and release the index for the last chord.

Alternately you could just play an A major or A Major 7 chord and the bass player would be controlling how the chord changes.

If its hard then re-adjust your technique, like I don't want to be one of those technique Nazi's on you, but generally thats it make sure your fingers aren't collapsed, your playing on the tips, theres a gap between the neck and your palm and your wrist is pushed forward.

You have some kind of recording. I am very curious to see what it sounds like now.
