What means 'epic'? Everyone understands this from their his own point of view...
#14
"Epic" to me would depend on the entire chord progression

Each of existing chord could sound epic with proper accompaniment, I guess

I love the 13 chord for some reason. Funky and easy to play I guess.

Either a Gsus2 played in open position e[--3
B[--3
G[--2
D[--0
A[--0
E[--3
That or any inversion of the 7sus4 chord...

Pick it with an upstroke letting it all ring, pause for a quick second and tap the major seventh below, letting it all ring out.

Pink Panther Snippet + GoldenEye Death = Epic Chord

How dare you attack the greatness of the augmented sixth?

One of my favourite chords as well.

It's the min/Maj7 chord: R, b3, 5, 7

Massive nostalgia has been induced.


Probably your standard open E major chord. Voodoo Child ftw.

A lot of chord voicings that sound good to me involve open strings.

Alex Lifeson of Rush fame was a master of open string voicings. Go listen to the third part of Fountain of Lamneth (Nobody at the Bridge) and you'll get a quick primer.

Dave Grohl uses open string voicings in the Foo Fighter's No Way Back chorus.

John Mayer likes these voicings too; you'll find them in No Such Thing.

EDIT: Oh, and my favorites; the arpeggiated E minor 9th and D major 7th voicings that make up the beginning to Led Zeppelin's Achilles Last Stand. That is truly epic.

Quite possibly one of my favourite chords ever is the dempsey68 chord :3.Either that or open G
#34
I loooove augmented chords when they're used right.

Also, the last chord in this song. Holy sh*t o_0

Quote by mishax92
I quite like:

E---7--
B---8--
G---7--
D--10--
A---7--
E-------

Cant figure out what to call it though. Em7add13- seems to work.

I was going to mention this, actually. I'd call it a C7sus2/E.

sus 2 when the third (E) is present?
7 (dominant) when there's a natural seventh (B) and not an A#/Bb?

It's an Em7addb13

Take out the Note on the high e string, and you have a true augmented chord (Em7#5)

I guess my notation is wrong, but I always felt that it suggested a C chord rather than an E. It could definitely be either depending on context though.

I also meant augmented more in the sense of straight up 1 3 #5. Still like that chord though.

It could very well suggest a C chord, but then it would be a CMaj9/E, which is an entirely different chord then C7sus2/E
