Rock Secrets – The Power Chord

By Darren DeFranco


 

Hey everybody! Welcome to level 2!

We’re going to start off this new section with perhaps the most important thing you’ll ever need to play rock guitar – the power chord. This is a moveable shape that you can play anywhere on the sixth string (for now) to create awesome rock riffs. Put a little distortion on those power chords and you’ll get a great rock sound! So many rock songs use these so it’s worth practicing! Have fun guys!

 

Now that you understand and can play a basic root 6 power chord shape, try to move the chord up one fret at a time until you reach the 12th fret. At that point, work your way back down. Remember to keep the shape the same and your hand steady.
