I was fooling around with my guitar when suddenly I played this:

|--0--|
|--0--|
|--2--|
|--3--|
|--3--|
|----|

it's like a F without the bar and I like the dark sound of it...is there any chord that sounds like it? I think that the 2nd and 3rd string give it its dark sound (B and A)

Yes, that's the name of the chord. Learn about chord construction and you'll be able to find more voicings for it (if you like the sound of it).

That chord works well with E major chord. Play E-Fmaj7#11 (and repeat) and it gives you kind of a "Spanish" sound.

what?...ok.
In case it helps (don't worry if it doesn't ) here's the full interval names for each note (relative to F root):

|--0--| = E = major 7th
|--0--| = B = augmented 4th
|--2--| = A = major 3rd
|--3--| = F = root
|--3--| = C = perfect 5th
|----|

Chord symbol shorthand reduces all that to "Fmaj7#11".

"F" implies a major 3rd (A) and perfect 5th (C).

"maj" refers to the 7th, because a plain "7" would mean an Eb note (the most common kind of 7th). "maj" means the larger 7th, a raised 7th.

"11", because chord extensions are counted (where possible) in alternate steps: 1-3-5-7-9-11-13. In that system, B ends up as the 11th from F. It's "augmented" because F-Bb is a "perfect" 4th/11th, which would be labelled plain "11" (or sometimes "add4").

Yeah that was meant to be more of a "once you get into it you'll be learning new things literally every day AWWW YEAH" type deal.

No you don't.
Not unless you want to, of course - and it sounds like you do, which is great!

Theory can be seductive once you get into it. Just don't forget to keep playing. It only makes sense when you hear it all in action.
