    add9's...because not only do they sound powerful with a decent amount of distortion, but they give lots of room for improvisation for the lead player (due to just the root, 5th and 9th being in the chord)

    Actually, seriously speaking, my very favorite chord is D-monic

    Sorry to state the obvious, but my favourite chord is the right chord.

    I'm not trying to be a smartypants here. It's just that after playing with and hiring and listening to bands for so many years in the business, one of the common faults I see in players, especially young ones fresh out of music college, is that they sometimes try too hard to come up with unusual voicings when a plain old 3 note CMajor sounds perfect.

    It all depends on the song, where you're coming from, and where you're going to.

    But in the interest of playing along with the concept, I like to throw in a 9th with a whole-tone interval for colour sometimes - like this:

    (low to high)
    F, C, F, G, C, F

    Or here's a great power chord using just your thumb and first finger:
    G, x, D, G, D, G

    And in keeping with my minimalist nature:
    x, x, x, x, F, Bb

    Cheers!
