This is video three of the Rhythm Guitar Quick-Start Series. In this lesson you will learn how to move the power chord shapes from the last lesson all around the fretboard to play any power chord you want. This way, if a band mate, friend you're playing with, or even sheet music calls for you to play a specific power chord - you'll be able to move right to that chord.
In order to do this effectively you'll need to learn the note names on the sixth and fifth guitar strings. It may take some time to accomplish this, but that's ok. By working on your power chords through this lesson, and the rest of the series, you'll start to memorize them over time.
These rhythm guitar lessons are essential for guitarists interested in playing popular songs, jamming with friends, or even performing live music. It doesn’t matter if you play acoustic guitar or electric guitar - the lessons apply equally to both.
You’ll learn how to play power chords, how to use power chords, how to play bar chords, major bar chord shapes, minor bar chord shapes, common chord progressions, how to play open chords, essential strumming patterns, how to develop timing and feel, and dynamic strumming tips.
