have you thought about making your chords richer??

You can do so by adding the 2nd (or 9th if it's one octave higher)
-0---0-----0-----0------------
-0---3-----0-----3-----------
-2---2-----0-----0------------
-2---0-----4-----2-------------
-0---------2-----3------------
-----------0-----------------
A9 D9 Em9 C9

There's also the 4th (or 13th same reason)

-0---3----0-------1--------------------------
-3---3----0-------1--------------------------
-2---2----2-------0------------------------
-2---0----2-------2--------------------------
-0--------2-------3-------------------------
----------0---------------------------------
A D E C

Try other ones two, but those are the most effective ones. (There's the 7th too, but I guess you know those)

adding ninths, elevenths, etc certainly add color to basic chords.
Youy may also start to experiment with same chords, different positions, as well as chords played in inversion
(changing order of low to high pitches)_

http://www.musictheory.net is a good free site which teachs how scales, and the chords formed from them work

For a decent introduction to some jazz chords. Pick up Mickey Baker's Jazz guitar instructional book. That has some nice chords and chord progressions in it, ites relatively uncomplicated and its pretty inexpensive.
:cool:
