How to play a power chord
What is a power chord? Well, it consists of two strings or three strings. We’re going to show you the two string power chord. It’s a movable chord, you play it all up and down the neck. The way you form the power chord is you’re going to take your first finger and we’re going to put it on the third fret of the six string. Then, we’re going to take the third finger, and place it on the fifth string, fifth fret. You could use the fourth finger, but let’s start out by using the third finger. It is a stretch, but you’d get used to it. As I said, it’s a movable chord, you can play it all up and down the neck. So, here it is on the third fret, and you only strum two strings. You’ll strum the sixth and fifth string. We could play it even on the first fret, the second fret, the third, the fourth, and it could go all the way up to the twelfth fret. So, a song can go up and down the neck. There is another one, it’s on the fifth string, we’ll put the first finger on the third fret of the fifth string. And then our third finger on the fourth string, fifth fret. And we just play those two strings, the fifth and the fourth string, together. And that chord is also movable, we could play it on the first fret, the second fret, the third, the fourth, the fifth, all the way up to the twelfth fret.
