So since everyone in my area is kinda rubbish at guitar/bass/drums/singing, im finding it hard to get in a band at the moment. I've been trying to write bits on my own, i thought maybe doing some good little rhythm parts with some nice chords, but moving away from power chords. How can i get some nice chords to play around with?
EDIT: I need chords that sound good with a distortion setting.

What great advice. I mean i know all the basic chords, e major, d, c , f, g all the ones you learn when you first start guitar but they don't sound good on electric really.

no i don't. I dont even play heavy music.

and when I said that those chords didn't sound good on distortion, i mean when i'm trying to come up with something new, it doesn't sound very interesting.
