I know a few of the bassic open chord shapes and the power chord shape.

What are some other chord shapes? I have been focusing on my lead playing that i've been ignoring rhythm for quite a while.

try barre chords.

when you use one finger to barre or press down on more that one string.

I suggest learning theory and figuring out chord shapes for yourself, you have no idea how immensely useful this skill is until you have it.

Maj7, m7, m7b5, they all can sound great in the right context, just play around. Inversions are also fun.
