Welcome to the Music Theory Forum. I'll start off the community with the first post.

What do you think about chords (Yes, it's trite, but I'm in a hurry)

I like chords with 9ths in them the best.
I perform the song 'Norwegian Wood' quite often and I find that a wide E,B,F#,G#,B,E is a great ending.

You could argue that "noise" is a chord as long as multiple pitches are being produced at the same time.

EWWWWWWWW!!!

No, leaving out the third is a wonderful staple of almost every kind of music, but having a vast majority of power chords makes a song way to simple for the music alone to be enjoyable for long periods of time. Unles you have an awsome drum beat!

Oh the neapolitan chords. I love 'em! I was reading over one of my friends' shoulders while she was playing "As Long As You're Mine" from Wicked, and I'm like "Hold the phone! That's a V/N to N progression! Awesome!" Yep. It was a good time.

I like mixing triads at random and trying my best to "force" it to work.

I like traditional harmonies.

IV V I, iv V i, IV V i, etc., plus variants (e.g. IV7, IVb7, ii, iio, ii(/)7, ii7, II9, etc.)

i VI VII III <-- one of my favorite chord progressions
VI III VII i <-- as made famous by the infamous Dragostea din Tei (even though it's pretty prevalent anyway)

IV V iii vi

And much more.

I V vi
ii V I
vi iii IV
ii V I

The use of the iii chord in a major key is very interesting.

I'm fond of complicated and full-tone chords which sound deeply, sonorously and sincerely.

im quite a beginner at this but i really love a chord progression of a minor chord followed by its diminished counterpart,,,

and i dunno how they do it but i like chords that are not all in one key at all,,,

I've grown fond of diminished major 7th chords.

Im new to chord construction and intervals, intervals are a hard part for me to learn, but mostly i like a good mix of chords, and i like to do random progressions mixing all types of chords.
