Hey..ive been playing guitar for a while..but one thing i have not got is a good selection fo open chords...im not talking about the simple ones like E A D G the more complex ones like C# major minor F# major and minor..Bb..you know the chords that alot of guitarists use bare chords for.

Does anyone have a selection of good open chords for most keys? just major and minor chords for now?

^ thanks! I always called it Am7 but the chord builder doesn't show it as that, and my theory is a bit rusty

Learn some chord theory and build chords while incorporating open strings. Using a capo can help in some instances. Also, you can use some strings as "drone" notes which ring in every chord in a progression, but you have to be careful with these.

Thanks much for your contribution to this thread...I really like the sound of this chord and its variations fingerpicked...pulling the middle and ring fingers off and back on also works...an amazing amount of variation from what is Am (0 0 2 2 1 0) to begin with.
