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.
