THE CHORDS

Total Guitar - - COVER FEATURE -

Typ­i­cally, 60s and 70s rock uses a com­bi­na­tion of pow­er­chords and tri­ads to cre­ate the iconic riffs we all love to play. Some­times triad chords are played over a dif­fer­ent bass note and these are referred to as slash chords. E5, D5 and C5 are pow­er­chords used in our clas­sic rock style rhythm ex­am­ple. A and D/A are use­ful for Brian May-style riffs like We will rock you and Ham­mer to fall.
