STUDY 1 Power Chords (Open/Move­able)

Guitar Techniques - - Play: Rock -

We be­gin our stud­ies with root/5th power chords. The first half of this piece is based around the five open-po­si­tion CAGED shapes, al­though each has been mod­i­fied to elim­i­nate ma­jor or mi­nor 3rd, al­low­ing us to strum away with an over­driven tone with­out any risk of un­wanted dis­so­nance. For the sec­ond half we stack 5th on top of root to cre­ate move­able power chord shapes that form the back­bone of many rock gui­tar player’s chordal vo­cab­u­lary.
