Learn Guitar: How To Master Power Chords

Then, each finger has its own number too. So the index (the one we are pointing with) is finger one, the major is the second finger, the ring finger is finger three, and the little pinky one is finger Four.
So there you are. With this, you would be able to know a little bit where to position yourself.

Now – For The Power Chords

Here’s an example Power Chords of a power Chord ( I will show you what I think is the easiest way of doing it):

Using 1st finger on the 3rd fret (or space) of the 6th string (the thickest one) and the 3rd finger on the 5th fret of the 5th string – play only those two string to see how it sounds. This one is call the G power string.

Now using the same fingers posture, just slide two fret higher. Like this: 1st finger on the 5th string of the 6th strings and 3rd finger on the 7th fret of the 5th strings. You have the A power chords. If you would add for instance, your 4th finger (the little pinky one) on the 7th fret of the 4th strings it will begin to sound like the full barre chord of A.

And to finish our progression here’s what to do. Using that same finger position instead of sliding up and down the guitar neck we gonna go change strings. It’s gonna look like this: 1st finger on the 3rd fret of the 5th string and 3rd finger on the 5th fret of the 4th string. Play those three strings to see how it sounds. You got the C power chords.
If We Put Them All Together

It would look something like this:

1st finger on the 3rd fret of the 6th string with the 3rd finger on the 5th fret of the 5th string
1st finger on the 5th string of the 6th strings with the 3rd finger on the 7th fret of the 5th strings
1st finger on the 3rd fret of the 5th string and 3rd finger on the 5th fret of the 4th string
Strum each one time changing one after another each strumming and you maybe not get a full song yet, but at least the beginning of one. Here is how you play power chords. I hope that this little demonstration helped you.
