Course I: Lesson 4

Here’s another crucial lesson for all beginners when it comes to rock and blues guitar. In this piece, we learn about creating “power chords” from all three positions, namely the E, A and D forms, as well as utilizing and working on the “closed” forms of these power chords in addition to their “open” counterparts. There’s also a discussion about the symmetry of these chord shapes, and about the importance of developing good finger “stretching” habits within your playing. Hope you enjoy!Arlen Roth
