Learning Power Chords Shouldn't Be Random

A lot of guitar players are introduced to power chords early, but rarely do they get a chance to learn them in a step-by-step fashion. And when they do, they only learn the most common versions, even though there are so many more, often overlooked voicings of these popular chords.

Start With the Basics

You'll learn easy open-voiced power chords, then move into two-note moveable chord shapes that will teach you every power chord from the open strings to the 12th fret.

Master Power Chords in Drop "D" Tuning

Drop "D" power chords are just as common as standard tuning power chords, and this book will help you learn them all.

Move Beyond the Basics

Once you know the basics, the next step is to learn other ways of playing the same chords to get different sounds. You'll learn three-note power chords as well as inversions.

Practice with Hundreds of Exercises and Full Song Examples

With over 100 practice exercises and plenty of songs, you'll have no trouble learning these chords.
