Ever found out you could play a chord (from a song or on your own) better than the straight up versions? Share them here if they sound particularly kickass.
My example - your average B7 chord.
The cool new way.
Way I figured it out - Muse - Uno

...so the usual way for you is a barre version, and the new version is the open chord? In general, open chords almost always sound warmer and more resonant and awesome.

This is true, but B7 is just an open chord that I've been unaware of for a really, really long time. I don't know, there's something about the way the 3 low notes are played together that really makes me love the sound.

Passing-chord-from-similarly-voiced-version-of-Emin F#7 (3rd inversion)
it's very dissonant and almost sinister. I love it and have been trying to find ways to use it with an E minor with the fretted notes up half a step. I really like how the bass note stays the same and the notes move down, but the chord itself is moving up.

Generally speaking, chords I find in classical guitar pieces > most others I find.

Isn't that just an F#79?
It sounds fucking cool.
EDIT: It's got a pretty ambiguous tonality, though the major second does add some majoriness.

i found these chords to sound quite awesome on an acoustic
