The fact of the matter is that ONE chord isn't going to do much more than get you through a line or two....but if I had to chose I'd chose C or G....or D...or maybe E....A is nice to though, but so is EM...and AM.....C7 has a nice ring to it...so does D7....I'm rather fond of F as well though...and Fm.

e-1
B-open
G-2
D-1
A-2
E-x

i think its B7 or B dominant 7 its nice and bluesy particu;a;ry when you are playing in E

Emaj7 ......any maj7th chord moving to min7ths or dominant 7ths

It's a refreshing sound.

I have always found Bm7 to be quite a cute, yet cheeky little chord. guitar.gif

I like it a minor third lower Gb7add6. Accompanied by Gb7(9). On up beats, real lounge feel to it.
