C. The plain old, first-position one. Gives you the full octave to pick over right in the middle, with slop room on the bottom (for walk-downs and -ups) and on the top (for melody runs). And I can sing in that key most songs that aren't plagal.

I keep wearing out the first fret on the 5th string of my guitars because of it. Shall have to learn to re-fret them or something.

I prefer 53's threads to the non-music threads. The opportunity to discuss specific guitars is appreciated by many. Personally "American Bashing" and discussing Charles Manson, etc, have no interest for me. I'd much prefer to talk about guitars and chords.

I agree with Amergin, Cflat, if you don't like the threads, don't sign on.

Bob, I have three answers. First, I love to sing in A and D. I prefer to play A in the open G position with the capo at the second fret and D in the open C postion with the capo at the second fret. But for sound only I love the 6/9 chord.

53 you keep posting, I always read them, even if I have nothing to add. regards, Fortunato

Hey, what's your favourite foot to walk on? Or your favourite gear for driving in? ;-)

If I'm playing around, it'll usually be in key of A, Am, Bm, C, D, Dm, E, Em, F or G - they're all handy for playing stuff in. No real preferences. Although a G chord in drop-D or double-drop-D sounds sweet.

Almost always though, I play capo-2 or capo-4 to suit my voice.

An Em for a jig such as Morrison's; it says shit's gonna happen...

An Am for a reel such as "Groweling Old Man, Grumbling Old Woman" for the same reason...

And Bm for the waltzes, like "Two Rivers" or "Far Away" 'cause it's a sweet minor that tells you that nothing bad is going to happen.

On a dobro being played guitar style, G7 with an added D, i.e. 320031.

Sorry, I can't remember chord terminology and I'm too lazy to go look it up. No doubt someone will feel obliged to comment, thereby furthering thread creep. (Voice from the rear: "Don't call me a creep!")

On a banjo, Ward's High Atmosphere, which I believe is a C9: eCGCD. Truly mellow on an open-back.

Well on a guitar, it's got to be G because there's so many ways in which one can utilize the open strings. This also, in a way, maximizes the volume and acoustical properties, even I might add, on an electric guitar. Open notes, or strings, usually ring better hence giving a truer representation of the quality of guitar which is being played.

All these posts - well the on-topic ones at least - are on about guitar chords. What about other instruments, for example melodeons? Plenty of fancy chords available there by playing across the LH rows.

Although the question "what's your favourite …" invariably deserves the response "favourite for what?"

Date: 30 Oct 18 - 04:01 AM

Is it just me, or do others find these sort of threads a bit unhealthy? If I admit to having a favourite chord, then have I reached a plateau in my learning and playing? Surely my favourite chord, song, tune or recording artist, etc ought to keep changing as more are discovered. Just like the lost chord, I have yet to find it, but the fun is in the journey.

Besides, chords have to be heard in context, not just with those immediately before and after, but arriving at just the right place in the song or tune. Someone mentioned Em in Morrisons Jig, and yes it has a satisfyingly dramatic impact when it immediately follows a tune in D or G major.

However, I assume some of us just like particular guitar chord shapes, like D, C, E and Em because they sit comfortably under the fingers and make good use of unfretted strings. Few people seem to favour Bm because it is awkward to finger for some, but it sounds great on guitar. Rodrigo’s Aranjuez Concerto works beautifully in Bm, but loses something when dropped to Am.

355400. It's essentially the G major barre chord everybody knows and loves, but with the first finger only fretting the 6th string instead of making a barre, thus leaving the 1st and 2nd strings open. The same shape sounds good at frets 1, 5, 7 and 8 as well.

All guitar chords sound the same unless you're a guitarist, so no favourites on that.

Two orchestral ones, where the scoring makes all the difference: the opening chord of
Prokofiev's Alexander Nevsky (not much more than a spread-out G minor but with amazing instrumentation) and Wagner's Tristan chord (which was actually invented by Chopin but being stuck with just a piano he couldn't do much with it).

G6 or the mystery of any ethereal 6 chord which resolves down or up.
My mind hears every chord with a different pull or push, openness or closedness, approach or retreat. You can even associate colors when you close your eyes. Or maybe you can't and I just have synthesisia.

Mercy, Joe... all these years and The Key of R is still being folk processed with the processor set on puree!

If Beethoven's 9th had been treated like that, it would by now sound like "Itsy Bitsy Spider"...

I think, now that digital videos are easy, I may just make a recording of my attempt to get both the tune and the spirit of it as close as possible...

Not sure what name it should have, but in standard tuning it's a C finger pattern slid up 2 frets (with no bar) so 054020. You can strum it or arpeggio it. It replaces a D in certain situations.

If you mean X54030, that is a D chord, but with an added second and fourth ( of the D major scale). Paul Simon famously used it in some of his early songs,
