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.
