Post away guys!

I'm not overly knowledgeable so I don't have much to contribute, but one chord I really like (I don't know the name of since I found it mucking about) is:

e-10
B-8
G-0
D-9
A-10
E-X

That appears to be a G. I don't play guitar, but if we extend this topic to my stringed instrument of choice:

C#m7 (1102) sounds very nice on a ukulele.

I'm a huge fan of chord progressions that involve chords outside of the tonic (don't know if that's really the correct music theory term but I hope you understand what I mean),

like this lovely progression towards the end of Have One on Me by Joanna Newsom (around 6:19): Am Em B7 C D F E C C/B (c chord with a B in the bass)

Philip Glass does it a lot, like in this track from Einstein on the Beach, starting around 0:55.

My friend showed me Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights the other day, which also has a groovy tonic-sidestepping progression in the verses: A F E C#m/M

And this song's full of it.

I really love songs with simpler progressions, too, especially ones that rely mostly on alternation between I and IV

Edit: just now saw it says guitar chords/progressions... forgive me?

haha don't worry. I'm just specifying guitar chords because I'm trying to play a bit more, so new chord(s/ progressions) would be cool. But it's nice to hear these other chord progressions all the same.

I've had this chord progression in my head, Em7-A-A-B, for a while now.
