What chord are you stuck on ?
For me its Dmajor.
Whenever I pick up guitar, that's the chord I play first.
Then whenever I try composing some song, I find myself doing some version of open Dmaj invariably (Dsus etc). Right now, I am trying not to hit it...
Any such chord for you which you just can't stop playing ? And ways to keep hands off it ?
For me is Am. Whenever I pick up a guitar, I also play the same chord. Curious. :D
Also it is my first chord after every tuning. It is something as "Ok, it sounds familiarly good."
Hmmmm...... never thought about it before..... for me it's actually a short series of chords . G, Em, C & D (in that order for some unknown reason!). So, I guess my answer is G Major.

"Don't wanna ride no shootin' star. Just wanna play on the rhythm guitar." Emmylou Harris, "Rhythm Guitar" from "The Ballad of Sally Rose"
Em7add11, but only because I'm too lazy to play a proper chord.
I'm pissed off because when I want to compose something I always do the obligatory D - C - G -Am - G...arrrghh!!
i'[m particulary fond of the Dm, Am, Em, G progression.
Does a b power chord count? =x
If not, the first open chords I learned which are... C, G, Am, Em, E, A, D
The same old same old :?
C#m for me - OK it's a barre chord, but playing it all the time is good practice for those (and God kows I need the practice! )

E/G# It takes me forever to place my fingers lol, just have to practice it over and over I guess.

That's a Cadd9 in open G tuning - and because you've got three 9ths in the chord, it's a very mellow sounding chord. I use 9ths a lot in open G.

That's a Dsus4 in the same tuning - I use that a lot, too.
:D :D :D

A chord. Been obsessed with Crossroads recently, and for the past week or so that's the first thing I'll play when I pick up the guitar. (Just watched the DVD from the Cream reunion)
Both E major (open) and the A power chord (open), both are incredibly simple but they sound so awesome (just ask AC/DC :D )
Amen to the AC/DC reference. I think they use those chords in just about every song of theirs.
"It's all about stickin it to the man!"
It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll!
Open C major without fail, D minor is another popular one since it's the saddest of all the chords
