How to Play Easy Power Chords on Your Guitar

What are Power Chords?

Power Chords are popular in rock and metal music because they create a heavy sound from your guitar. A Power Chord is basically a ‘mini chord’ made of two notes in an interval of a fifth chord. As a result, Power Chords are also often known as Fifth Chords, and they’re the easiest and most popular guitar chords to play.

The Fretello app’s fun and simple guitar courses will teach you simple riffs, shapes and skills that will soon get you playing rock classics using Power Chords, like Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple.

Remember, no one’s born a guitar master. But with regular practice, you’ll soon become the guitar player you’ve always wanted to be. Subscribe to our channel to receive regular video tutorials that will help you become a better guitarist, just a few minutes at a time.
