My all time favorite is A voiced xx7650 - the ringing octave on the open first string gives a really great character, and it's a nice counterpoint to the usual x02220

Always loved the ending to "Classical Gas". Arpeggio picking from the 5th open string up and back down to the 4th string.
03230 04230 then A major. 03330 strum up and down with accent. Ace

I like the basic jazz chord (name?) at, for example, 7x7777. I also like it at 12 X 12 12 12 14. Anybody know this chord?

I also like the SRV progression at xxx 12 12 12, xxx 14 14 14, xxx 19 19 19.

Assuming standard tuning, all of those fingering positions are minors.

The first two chords you asked are minor seventh positions (Bm7 and Em7). I never mute the 5th string though....as an example the first one is a Bm7th but I play it 797777. Same for the Em7th.

The "SRV" progression is also a minor progression. The first one is a Em, the second is F#m and the third is Bm.

Low to high: 313030
Gm7add6 i.e. Bb13#11? (I don't know the names) includes all possible intervals (if you consider that once you pass tri tone interval the intervals repeat relative to the octave up.) This chord can stand alone and sound good, I like to have chorused clean sound and just play with the different voicings.
Another one I come across recently that is super cool is x5444x, Dmaj6b9? Sounds like garbage right? Play Amin7 before it 575555. What?

That's how it is with demolished chords, like "what the huh?" Mostly it's all about context.
But that first one is good all by itself. Also fingerings noted and not too difficult.
I feel that way trying to do my rudiments, just learning drums (on the job!)
Try 'em out! I gots more.

My favorite chord is x234xx played repeatedly as fast and loud as possible and ending with 000001 and pull off that F so it’s all open for when you throw the guitar into the bass drum.
