    I usually like my minors with 9s, and my majors with 7s and #11s. There's a family of F#m open chords that you can get on an F#-standard tuned 8-string that are quite beautiful, and really show off the expressive chording potential of ERGs.

    I hate all chords and consider each one of them equally ugly.

    I used to use a lot of tone clusters...

    Open high E, F (6th fret) on the B string, and Eb (8th fret) on the G string... my shout out to John Cage and Iannis Xenakis...

    E-10-----------
    B---11---------
    G-----12-------
    D-------13-----
    A-----------17-
    E--------------


    Sweep down, let all ring, then tap on the D and let all five notes ring out.
