Cool lesson! I love to use those
Nice lesson! I remember a friend showed me these about a year ago and I spent the next week modifying everything in my repertoire. Nevertheless, I forgot about them after a time and its very nice to have a lesson in your repertoire to remind us how cool these are to use. Cool idea about making the chords sound bigger! It really works well!
Very clever idea, thanks Joe.
Great stuff for some progressive rock/fusion style riffing & rhythm work!
Great lesson Joe!! I love the sound of add9's!!!

Love the lesson! Which guitar is that?
a Mayones Setius custom Joe Kataldo
Thanks this is realy usefull becouse my own new song<3 is based in these chords (9th Power Chords) and I love the sound of them. Cheers mate
Very useful Joe! Sounds very much like early Rush... I guess I've discovered part of Alex Lifeson's sound! Yippee!
Hi guys, Joe Kataldo here today I wanna show you a variation of the basic root/fifth power chord, the add9th. As the name says this power chords have, apart from root and fifth and added 9th, that is the same note as the second, just an octave higher:
R - 5th - 9th
G - D - A
The whole study uses only this kind of power chords, trying to explore their musical and rhythmically possibility in full. Two main shapes are used the one explained above and an inversion of it made of 5th root 9th 5th:
5th - R - 9th - 5th
D - G - A - D
First part of the study is a fast driven rock, all down stroke picked with palm mutin on bass notes, second part is more open sounding with arpeggiated parts
To make power chords sound huge, like the last Badd9, instead of strike chords, slightly drag across strings
