Power chords - why do they have that name? Well the best explanation probably comes from listening to them. Preferablythrough a large 100 watt tube powered stack turned all the way up. (protect your ears!) You could even get a good explanation with it turned only to 7.

A power chord is the most powerful full sounding chord that can come out of a guitar. That's why they are called power chords.

They can be rightly claimed to be the basis of most of the Rock and Blues songs out there.

Is it easy to play power chords? Yes, Very. If there is a perfect place to start sounding really good on a guitar, it would be power chords.

Power chords usually use one, two or at the most three fingers - and that's for the most advanced ones out there.I hope to include some video in the near future to show how really easy this stuff is.

f your not acquainted with reading tab yet be sure and read tab lessons.

These are the basis for thousands of songs. Use them wisely and never underestimate the power of them.

And speaking of meat you can get a good meaty sound out of these by using the meaty part of your picking hand to partially mute the strings while hitting them with your pick.

First up - open power chords. Get this - your gonna have to use one finger on these. I know its tough but you can handle it.

Next guitar power chords chart - movable power chords. Brace yourself - your gonna have to use two fingers on these. You can do it.

What you need the same pattern or progression works anywhere up and down the first and seconds strings. Anywhere you can put a finger on a fret.

The name of chord is the note that your first finger is on. Start with the first chord move to the second and then the third and you have the one, four five progression

that I talked about earlier. (simple stuff)

Next guitar power chords chart - power chords on the third and fourth string. Same idea - the name of the chord is the name of the note that your first finger is on.

These have a higher pitch to them. Experiment and have fun.
