are you just playing music or are there lyrics to go with?

I'm assuming theres lyrics, are they written already?

are you using a piano or are you using a guitar or maybe another instrument?

and are you just playing around till you find the right chords or have you picked a specific key to play in?

I feel like minor7 chords are a great place to start....

Some pieces are only meant to be played by people with six fingers on their fretting hand. Sorry.
use a lot of sus chords and 9 chords, open strings too to help make more color. it's all about the color. you can take a normal progression, like a I V vi IV, and do like...Dmaj7, Asus2, Bm7, then to switch up the G chord play a Dmaj in open position with the G in the base. just an example but just try different ways to make really nice chords. i can't stress enough the use of open strings
Fender Strat Deluxe
Fender MexiStrat
Epiphone Sheritan
Ibanez Artcore
Fender Twin Reverb silverface
Roland JC120

I would recommend the marshal MG100

Very versatile and quality sound. It should treat you well
bIII, bVI and bVII always work too.

Like I - bVII - bVI - bIII - V7 or
I - V - bVII - IV (perfect progression to throw in some corny sus4's as well)

The right way to do this is to take five songs similar in idea to what you want to create and analyze them - figure out what their chords are, see how they work.

And then apply it to your own song.
