Who can really blame them? There's only so much that you can say about power chords, right? I beg to differ. Power chords are synonymous with the guitar.
Usually people think about someone on an electric guitar, with nice fat distortion, chugging away on power chords. There are undoubtedly hundreds of classic guitar riffs that use power chords as their primary tool, but they are not limited to just the electric guitar, as typical acoustic guitarist finds them helpful tools as well.
Plus, the name 'Power Chord' is a cool name. This is not just some regular old chord. No, it's a Power Chord! Think back to the picture of the power chord rocker we visualised a moment ago. Don't you think he or she feels empowered by these, so-called Power Chords? They are powerful sounding and empowering at the same time. Power Chords! What's not to like about them? So, yes. I can write a whole book on simple power chords. I will show you the theory behind them. I will also tell you about the bigger picture that power chords belong to. I will show you how power chords are an integral part of the guitar and popular music as a whole.
I will also introduce plenty of evidence to you about the merits of power chords. I'm talking about decade after decade of great guitar riffs that are wholly comprised of power chords. These are some of the greatest guitar riffs ever and they are played with power chords! You will come to fully appreciate the power chord and have a firm grasp of it's use, not only for yourself, but for music in general.
It will be a truly enlightening moment for you. On the other hand, they are only power chords. This meaning that they do have their limitations. I can't tell you how many players I've seen who could play power chords fine, but couldn't play an open chord or a barre chord to save their life, and not to mention, having no clue as to what they were playing. This will not be YOU, because you are lucky enough to have this book in your hands.
I hope you enjoy it!
All power chords are easy to learn and play, but the first one I'll show you is delightfully easy, because we only need one finger to play it. You'll strum all 3 strings at the same time while being careful not to play the other 3 strings: G, B, and high E.
Pretty simple, right? Illustration 2: E power chord in tab Don't know how to read tablature? No worries! We've got that covered, too. Just visit Guitar Alliance at the link below to learn this needed skill. Now, lock yourself in your room, plug your guitar into your favourite amp, and turn it up. When you're all set, hit the E power chord, and feel the power!
All should go well as long as you only play the bottom three strings, your finger is on the right fret, and you're firming holding down those two notes on the A and D string.
Ok, so we have our first power chord down. Now what? Well, were going to embark on a journey that will turn this into the first step of many. The next step is learning about the who, what, why of the power chord. What is it made of? It's certainly not made of cheese. We'll discover the theory behind power chords and find the pieces the combine to create them. Then we'll learn about the many different ways to play power chords, how they relate to other chords, how we can use them in our own music, and finally how they have been used for the past 40 years in popular music.
All will this will result of the first step you made in this first chapter, but we're getting ahead of ourselves. Soon, you will be rocking out to your own power chords, but you've got to learn how to walk before you can run. With that in mind let's now proceed to chapter 2 where we'll learn that power chords aren't really chords at all It's something that is never talked about or even mentioned.
Do you want to know what the big secret is? Power chords are not real chords. There, I said it. The key word being 'chord'.
So, why am I now telling you that it's not a real chord? I know I'm sending you mixed als. Let's just get to the bottom of it. To do this we'll get a little technical and dive into some theory. In music, a chord is the simultaneous sounding of three or more different notes at one time. Whereas the power chord is constructed of only two different notes.
An interval is the sounding of only two notes at one time, so power chords, in theory, are intervals and not chords. The plot thickens, because if you look deeper you'll discover that power chords are really a fragment of a chord. Do you remember the E power chord that we learned in chapter 1? It was the E power chord and if you look closely you'll see how it is only a fragment of the open E chord. We strum all six strings when we are playing a full open E chord as in illustration 3.
We are playing six notes since there are six strings, but there are only three different notes: E, B, and G. The other three notes are duplicates. They are the same notes played at a different pitch. The E notes appear on the low E string sixth stringhigh E 1st string, closer to floorand the 2 nd fret of the D string.
The B notes can be found on the 2nd fret of the A string 5th string and the open B string 2nd string. The lonely G is found on the 1 st fret of the G string 3rd string. The basic chord is three notes and is called a triad.
We can use intervals of the major scale to create these chords. Illustration 4: The C major scale. The major scale has seven different notes.
In Illustration 4 we see the C major scale. The first note in the scale is called the root note or the 1st. We can each subsequent note When I, or someone else, asks you for the 3 rd you'll know it's the 3rd step in the major scale. We can then construct the rest of the scale by applying a simple formula. Illustration 5: The Formula for the major scale. In Illustration 5 you'll see a table with two rows of twelve blocks. The twelve blocks on the bottom represent the 12 notes in music.No Strings Attached Sex AR Malvern 72104
