We continuously mention a huge advocacy for 3-note chords. Maybe you've already got your own stock of them under your fingertips, and are fluent with transpositions seamlessly across strings and up frets. This is an incredibly valuable skill, and if you don't now, the more you work with these, the more automatic they will become.
We've been privileged with a great PDF resource we want to pass on to you. JazzMando Research Assistant and designated Deputy Chord Curator, Charlie Jones has generously submitted an intensely thorough catalog of 3-note chords. This can be enormously helpful, even if you already know the variations of major, minor, 7th, etc. Of course if you have these voices down, you can take the next mental step of adding extended voicings, 9ths, 13ths, and 11ths. Put the 3-note chords in the lower string and your pinky is right there on the E-string to add some color, too.
