Well, give me another music than, one that has many star ratings in ultimate-guitar, so I can see...I heard the music now and you're right...it doesn't sound like that...but I didn't test it, just saw the formation and wrote it smile.gif

Hey A technique i love is using root + 3rd chords. its something i discovered wen trying to get out of playing just power chords myself, i messed around with different intervals and found this one to sound very epic!!. The shape for the minor version looks just like a power chord but inverted.

So playing 7th fret on the a string and 5th fret D string will give you a E and a G which is the root and 3rd of a e minor chord. Sounds great with distortion, once i see you understand what im talking about ill list out all of them in the key of e minor for you!

Edit:
I just saw your post above and it talks about some of what i was talking about

------
------
---2--
---3-- This is root + maj 3rd! i love this shape. i think this is F Major
------
------

------
------
---4-- Yes this would be considered diminished! Root + b5
---3--
------
------

------
------
---5--
---5-- thats a perfect 4th interval, i use them alot cause they sound really cool when you slide them
------
------

Sorry if anything is wrong here, ive only been learning for about a year and a half sad.gif

The thing about being really stupid, is that there are a zillion ways to be a moron. There are usually several ways to be intelligent, given a situation, but it is a small finite number. But there are always a zillion ways to be to blithering idiot. So finding a new way to have the intellect of an artichoke is nothing to be proud of really, it is easy to do.


So true... To bad im still an artichoke haha

I don't know if you have tried the inversed Root - third, like Fifth fret on the 6th string and 9th fret on the 5th string.

could also be called an augmented power chord. You can have root - 6th to get a cool sound as well.

Here are come cool chords I like to use instead of powerchords: (I don't know the names of them all, but I'll post tabs)

A major intercal with an octave soudns great and for example, it could be like this:

D 7
A:4
E:5

A power chord with an added 9 (I think):

D:9
A:7
E:5

Something diminished:

G:5
D:4
A:
E:5

A nice variation to a power chord with an added flat 9 or something, I don't really know:

D:8
A:7
E:5

A minor interval:

A:3
E:5

And there are lots of other options, but these are the ones I use mostly. I made all chords A-something, but you get it.
