How To Play Power Chords On Guitar

Want to learn how to play something on the guitar, quick and dirty like? Then power chords are just up your alley… All you need is to learn one chord pattern, and where to place that pattern, and you’re set.

Power chords aren’t truly guitar chords, in the sense of having 3 different notes in them, and because of that some people like to call them cheater chords. All the same, they sound cool, and you’ll find them in many different songs.

I laughed for hours…and then I stopped because I got tired… and it was time for bed, and that’s not funny.

Seriously, thanks for making this. It’s wild that it’s pretty much elementry simple, yet gives such a “phat” sound that I could sound like I’m a not as much a guitarist begginer.

A friend lent me his electric to show the difference, I have a harmony 3/4 acoustic… but even on that it gives a cool sound without the distortion.

Get better video servers and more bandwidth to the Internet. I can’t even watch your video because it stops and starts so much. You have to know computers and networks as much as guitar tecchniques if you are going to succeed at this.

This is awesome insight for chords. The B Chord on this is much better than that B7/BM. I hate them chords, but they will come around at some point.
