It is the fundamental key to being a good writer as well as enabling one to interpret how music is constructed. Having a good chord vocabulary also is the foundation of being a good soloist, as rhythmic elements and melodic composition are better understood when related to chords.
When it comes to chords one should be focusing on and understanding how chords are constructed and then memorizing as many different chords shapes and voicings as possible in order to build a good solid chord vocabulary.
