Guitar Power chords

Guitar power chords

Guitar power chords are very similar to barre chords. As you learned by now. Barre chords (and other chord formations) are comprised of R-3-5. Power chords are simply R-5. Power chords are not recognize as true chords, like other chords. Because they don’t have the 3rd tone and they are call dyads. It makes sense, dy meaning 2.

A lot of modern rock songs use power chords so you will see them come up in the songs later on. They are much simpler and they sound great. Don’t forget to practice your other chord formations also!¬†Below are some examples of power chords.
