Power Chords

When playing rock guitar… power chords are a useful too to help create a tough authentic had rock sound.Check out the Kinks you really got Me for an excellent example of early power chord use.Guitarists can use power chords In some styles of music, particularly in rock and roll,punk & heavy metal, it’s not always necessary to play a big, full sounding chord some times it’s very cool to keep it tough sounding. Often, especially on an electric guitar, it sounds best to play two-or-three note chords. This is when power chords come in handy. Built on the lowest notes of a regular open-position or barre chord in rock music to create a low sound.Power Chords are taught in our London guitar lessons and used in most styles of music but are particularly useful for rock guitar.Power chords sound sweet on the  acoustic guitar and on the bass guitar. Power chords are easier to play than are their full-version counterparts and don’t contain a major or minor quality to them, so they can stand in for either type of chord. Plus, they’re loads of fun to play!

Although a power chord consists of only two different notes that are always five steps apart, such as A–E or C–G, the actual chord that you play may involve more than two strings, because you may be doubling each of the notes that make up the power chord.Use your 1st, 3rd and 4th fingers to play CHUNKY POWER CHORDS & ROCK!

Johnny Marr Guitar Great

The thing that always gets me about Jonny Marr is he left the Smiths when he was Twenty One! Jonny’s  got some seriously musically inflammable fuel in his tank! I’ve always been a big fan of his since i heard the early Rough Trade releases.My younger brother was a little bit ahead of his time and he was bang on the Smiths from day one.I clearly remember buying Hatful of Hollow in Probe Records Liverpool off this weird dude with bones around his neck & dreadlocks (Pete Burns) the Dead or Alive Frontman.Johnny’s sound was pretty unique for the time when he came along and along with The Edge,Will Sergeant (Echo and The Bunnymen ) & Roddy Frame of Aztec Camera Fame he was a shining light of the guitar in the 80’s. At London Guitar Academy we love Johnny for his melody,chord use & most of all the great songs he’s contributed to! Plus he drove Noel Gallagher from a flegling Oasis to by a guitar from Musicground in Doncaster the same place i drove to from Cheshire to buy my first Les Paul.So nice one Johnny & THANK YOU FOR THE INSPIRATION & JANGLE.

Sixteen clumsy & shy i went to London & i…….. bought a Guild Twelve string & got the best job in the WORLD! I sit in a huge Loft Space on LONSDALE ROAD  all day play my guitar with the best people in London.Every guitar student i see wants to be there….So life is GOOD!!
