different chords for different … needs

all variations of B are the best chords because they don’t sound quite as major or minor as your standard open chords and also you can transition easily from them.

I couldn’t have made this any more clearer

That’s not in the list

Clearly it’s A minor, open, on a recently tuned acoustic guitar in a room with plenty of natural reverb.

Bloody love A minor, so easy to smash your fingers sideways into E and then back again. Could do that all day. Lovely.


not even with a bigger font, or perhaps bold?

Yeah, I suppose you’re right actually, sorry

it’s fine, I’m just not voting for chords that don’t appeal to me.

on a different note, are the chords instrument specific? Some chords sound better on certain instruments.

I barely ever play those chords the standard way anymore.

Open D - 550500

I will be using all of the ones listed equally in my newest song.

I’m going to have to go with Asus with F# added [2 X 0 2 3 0]. All this time I’ve thought it was some sort of D because I don’t know anything about music theory.

A key component of the most beautiful progression there is:

That’s what I always thought too.

whats the song then?
