I can't decide between A#7 and Cdom7. They're beautiful by themselves, but even better because I hold only piano chords. They're so... forlorn, pleading and mysterious at the same time.
Yes, I actually manage to hold them
Took an entire month of practice, but now my fingers are flexible enough to hold with ease and for the 2nd Cdom7 I had to master holding down 2 frets with 1 finger- I also do this for minor chords with the root on the A string
Think David Crosby.
Not really one chord alone so much as its chord form, and what you can do with it all over the fingerboard-
I go with a simple first position A chord, but then manipulating it with hammers/pulls, changing it to minor, 7th, major 7th, and barring that all over- it's a 'crucial chord' for me as someone that plays a lot in trio/duo/solo in that I can play solo, yet keep rhythm going at same time droning open strings, etc., against these shapes. YAY A!!
13ths an 9ths. Although being a country picker mostly, I don't get to play with them much. In that case, the 6th is always a nice cord to add a little jazziness to you're traditional country.
Like many others, open G is my go to when I pick up an acoustic (never heard it called the Beatles G either).
I also really like a well placed sustained maj7th chord when used to color up an otherwise standard progression, a la “Under the Bridge”.
You can find the name(s) of ANY chord you can dream up here...
Yours is a Bbm6(#5). Several other names for it too if you go to the link above and enter your chord you'll see all the names. I use this site all the time. Seems pretty good to me.
Oh..and almost forgot...my favorite chord is the one that plugs my guitar into my amp
Probably the minor 9th,
but the m7th b5th is one i use a lot too.
