The worst sounding chord

Messing around with this week's SSG assignment I quite accidently stumbled upon the worse sounding chord I've ever made.
101000
Now I know that's binary for something . . . but in guitar language it is a most foul sounding chord I've yet heard . . .
but being a relative beginner, I'm sure others have found worse.
So would anyone like to share?

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

Any chord I've played when I've drunk too much merlot. David and Greg can testify to this.

I put a little whammy bar action on it; so it ain't so bad.

That's not the "brown note" is it?

I don't know what the "brown note" is . . . but that would be one way of describing it.

In binary, it's be 40, which is "(" in ascii.

The "brown note" is the theoretical note that vibrates at a particular frequency and makes your bowels loosen.

In the right context, no chords are bad. In the wrong context, many of them sound terrible. And what sounds terrible to me might sound great to someone else.

Where do you get your energies? Well its a vicious circle thing, If I hadn't ever played an instrument then I wouldn't ever need to play one. But now that I've been playing, I need to play. - Eric Clapton 1967 RollingStone interview

I've heard it through head phones, and all that really happens is you feel a little uncomfortable internally.

I heard of it through "South Park" where the kids had all gotten their fellow peers to play the brown note at a particular point in a world record attempt for the most recorders playing "Ode To Joy" or something like that. They switched the sheet music and made the whole county simultaneously crap their pants.

This works with most of my wrong notes.

Long live the floyd rose!
