This is a basic guitar power chord chart
All power chords are made be using the Root note of a
chord and then the 5th note from a scale. Often the root
note octave is then played above the 5th to make the
chord sound stronger.
An A power chord is known as A5 and an E power
chord is known as E5.
You can play them anywhere on the guitar but they
sound best using the lowest 4 strings of the guitar.
Nirvana, Feeder, Foo Fighters and loads of other
bands use power chords in their songs. They are very
simple to play but sound very effective and can
easily be used as the main part of a riff.
