The main first position chords are the ones I am most familiar with, such as G,C,D,E,A, Am, all those within the first 3 frets or so. Anyways, Since I've known those chords I have come up with alot of finger picking, classical sounding music. Yet I don't know many picking patterns and chord variations of those. What is some good advice for this problem? and what is a set of new chords I can learn that can be thrown together nicely?

Also, if you know any good songs, strumming, or picking for acoustic would be nice, I like alot of Godsmack like "voices" "asleep" "hollow" etc. those are my taste in strumming, picking, anything from Simon and Garfunkel to Tommy emmanuel.
Thanks!!!

A technique I really like with those dominant chords you mentioned is to form the chord like usual with your fretting hand, and just pick the top 3 strings alternatley (Or up and down) Then throw in the 4th string and back to the 3rd.
The D chord for example pick string 4-3-2-3-4-3-2-3-4-3-2-1-2.
Also when strumming a chord try experimenting with lifting a finger on your fretting hand and opening the string for a few beats, then just fret the chord as usual for a few beats.
D - open the 1 string, G - open the 5 string, C - open the 4 string...etc.
Play around with it hope that helps.

I'd advise you to buy a chord chart and try putting different chords together
