Remember, what gives the sound of each open string. There are chordsthat you can take, not clamping the strings at all. A seven-string guitar is a g major triad. Six-string guitar provides in this sense a few more features. Alone on the open strings can sound treatment of the e minor and g major triads, and the e minor seventh chord.
