With this lesson we're going to see some rhythm parts using only power chords.
What is a power chord? I'm sure most of you know already the answer.
A power chord is the simplest chord we can play, consisting of only the root note of the chord and the fifth. As example, an A5 chord is made by A and E notes.
Many theory books write that a chord is made by three or more notes. In most cases, these books are not talking about rock and modern music, while power chord become famous especially thanks to the early heavy metal bands. Do you know a song called Smoke On The Water??
So, it doesn't matter if we call a power chord a real "chord" or not! On the other side we must know how to play them in different ways. In this lesson you'll find different voicings using also open strings. This means that you can alternate root notes and fifths note in many ways in your fingerings and you'll still get a power chord.
Remember that complex chords can sound messy using a lot of distortion, while power chords will sound good also with an high gain sound.
To record this lesson I used my Washburn N4 (tuned down an half step), EZdrummer and a free VST of the SimulAnalog project for the guitar sound - www.simulanalog.org
If you like the sound and you want to know the settings, please let me know here or in my board and I will be happy to post a screenshot of the interface.
