F Power Chord
E and A string are your 2 strings that a Power Chord starts the naming for the chord.
The E string and the Chromatic scale and the same shape for all chords. The above F Power chord, see the first fret now that is an F note and makes a F power chord. note there is 2 F notes and the second note is a C note. Now place that same shape starting it at the 3rd fret. look at chromatic scale below and 3rd fret e string is a G note= G power chord…now if you start on the A string and 3rd fret you have a C power chord. also no matter what these power chords are 3 notes just like in the chart. these are the only strings you strum just 3…
Place your Power Chord on the 8th fret down strike 4 times then move it to 3rd fret and downstroke 4 times then 6th fret and downstroke 4 times then 1st fret and 4 down strikes. now what did we just do?
fret 8 = C and 3 = G and 6 = A# and 1 = F….so 8,3,6,1 = C,G,A#,F …. now this is from the E string Chromatic scale. remember the E string and the A string are the only 2 strings that make a power chord although there is 3 notes for the Power Chord that 3rd note is a duplicate.Now you are armed with that info…. let’s take a mix of those 2 strings for power chords. lets stay on the first 3 frets now and do the same notes. C,G,A#,F….
C= 3rd fret A string
G= 3rd fret E string
A#= 1st fret A string
F= 1st fret E string
