I was just playing around, and I played these two chords consecutively that in my opinion sound pretty sweet.

Me knowing nothing about chords, I come to thee, mighty member of UG. No rhyme intended.

I'm in drop C tuning, but the notes are as follows, from low end to high: C G E G C. The second chord is: C G E G B

The fretting is as follows, although this will probably be messed up:

D--------------------
A-3----------2------
F-2----------2------
C-4---------4-------
G-0---------0-------
C-0---------0-------

Thank you, mighty horde of UG'ers.

No problem
Just so you know, those are different "Voicings"(which pretty much just means "positions") of the chord, since they aren't in any specific inversion, I've heard the term "open position" used. But try playing the same notes, in a different order. You'll get a different sound with each inversion.

C - E - G (Root position)
E - G - C (First inversion)
G - C - E (Second inversion)

And

C - E - G - B (Root position)
E - G - B - C (First inversion)
G - B - C - E (Second inversion)
B - C - G - E (Third inversion)

EDIT: Although don't feel discouraged to find different voicings, and doubling up on some notes.

Cool, thanks one vision. I've been meaning to delve into some chords, but I haven't sat down to do it yet. Maybe this will be that jump into the abyss I've been waiting for.
