Well metal heads, it is time to share some metal chordsss YEAH!!

Some years ago i asked myself why most of the guitar players (including famous ones) play only the power chods (1-5 grades)?

So I search for new ways to play a chord with heavy distortion which sounds good

These are the ones I know so far (all them without the 3 erd)

All of them in Do major ( C )

A--x--
B--1--
G--0--
D--x--
A--3--
E--x--

or

A--x--
B--13--
G--12--
D--10--
A--10--
E--x--

or (this is lovely, try playing it on A-G or F )

A---8--
B---8--
G---x--
D--10--
A--10--
E--x--

I will post a few more when I remember them

So as Tom Cruise would say " SHOW MYE YOUR CHORDS MOTHERF****, SHOW ME YOUR CHORDS!!" biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

I like these two chords the best in drop tunings.

So why do I get two chord names? I used a chord namer.

F#sus2addb9/G
F#sus2addb2/G

I use this one after a big open rhythm chunk, and sometimes play it backwards as an arpeggio.


Gsus4
C5/G

This sounds nice in rhythms.

Great question smile.gif Power Chords are great but limited. Once you go beyond them you start to define your own sound. As has been mentioned, DIMINISHED chords can work well, as can MINOR chords. You may have to add varied picking in to them instead of strumming or crunching, but that too opens up new sounds.

I like the creating dissonant powerchords made from fractions of diminished chords, insert them occasionally between regular ones.
