THE CHORDS

Total Guitar - - COVER FEATURE -

In ad­di­tion to those all-im­por­tant pow­er­chords, more ex­otic chords are used in metal bal­lads and are a key part of any prog metal band’s sound. Emadd9 is heard in arpeg­giated in­tros like Wel­come Home San­i­tar­ium by Me­tal­lica. E 5, D 5 and A 5 pow­er­chords are the start­ing points for many a metal riff and Plac­ing the 5th in­ter­val in the bass (C5/G) pro­vides a pow­er­ful, low tuned-style sound.
