Hey, I have been guitaring for about two years but still not that good. I was hoping some of you guys could help me with it by giving me some good sounding chords. I really want to start doing my own stuff. I think i might be good enough for that by now. so if anyone would like to help it would be great.

If you play an A, E, B, or C# powerchord on your A string, but leave the bottome two strings open, it sounds really cool on an acoustic.

That's an ugly chord.

And threadstarter, you should learn barre chords, you will have more to play with.

Wow! Another guitar player who can't be nice! I find it sad to see so many guitar players who are so incredibly rude and obnoxious... I've also noticed the majority are male... Hmm....

here you go...

http://www.classbrain.com/artteensb/publish/article_266.shtml#

Just press what chord you want under "Barre Chords" and the fingering will show up.

The fret the chord is played on is on the left hand side.

I realize this isn't the best, so ill try to find something better.

Oh, and didn't mean to criticize you earlier, just poking some fun.

which isn't a very valid point since the majority of guitar players are male

If you look, the F barre chord has your middle finger on the 2nd fret, or on the A note of the G string. The F Minor has you take that middle finger off and play the 1st fret.

It doesnt sound good on its own, but trust me, it sounds sweet if you lead onto the right chords

Yeah, girls are under represented... People look at me strangley whenever I say I'm learining guitar. Who knows, my point was that though I know some female guitarists, and there are a few on UG, you dont see them being asses (however you spell ass in plural...) To shaw, I know it was a joke, but I dont think any guitarist needs to hear that. I understand though, I feel frustrated when people have been playing for years and look at me like what? when I mention barre chords. Thanks guys. UG guitarists are the best. Peace.
