A, C, D, E, and G chords are the only ones you need to know because every thing else is just a barred version of one of these.

I agree with Chimzar, but also don't forget your minor & dominant 7th chords, too (Am, Dm, Em - A7, B7, C7, D7, E7, & G7). The 'bread & butter' scale fingerings you should have down are the Major scale (which is really 7 scale fingerings learned total when you count the modes) and definitely your Major & minor pentatonic scale fingerings. Good luck!

well i was going to say exactly wht gtrguru said but i guess i'm too late for that, but when you master them try some other chords that are a little harder like F and B, then you will be able to make some music
Good Luck
