okay, im looking for some chords use open strings, preferably (?) minor chords but any will do

e.g

E - 0
B - 0
G - 6
D - 7
A - 0
E - X <------ The A shape from Taking back sundays 'Decade Under The Influence'

I love the way that sounds, especially the open strings... so is there anymore like that?

thanks

When I feel REALLY ambitious I just place my fingers in random spots and adjust until it sounds good. Then later look up the notes you played and determine what chord it is.

It's a strange way to do it, but I've written entire songs like that.

heres a technique: Make a bar chord, but then just lift up your index finger and mute the low e with your thumb. For Minor chords, just put your index on the g string where the index was without pressing down the other strings. Gets you amazing chords.

You can also do it with power chords that start on the A string.

Great chords.
