Can someone help me out with some beautiful sounding chords please?

open barre chords sound really good just play any barre chord but don't bar the b and high e some don't sound very good but most of them do, also playing with a cut capo sounds good

Beautiful is rather subjective. Some may like minor some may enjoy majors. See some of the posts above me. Someone said major 7 someoen else said minor 7. Haha

open 'E' formation "barred" anywhere on the neck sounds gr8 to me.

yeah i agree. some good examples are G (355400) and Bm (x24430). they sound good espesially paired together. and another chord i always liked is (x02120) hope that helps
I hate my sig
