you can use wathever fingering you like best.


Maybe you should use a browser with a spell checker?

Two notes is technically a harmonic interval btw not a chord. It's just me being very pedantic but I always feel it's important to be as correct as possible when teaching.

Also what about power chords rooted on the D G or b strings or alternative ways of playing power chords (which there are)

However it does what it says on the tin it teaches noobs enough to get them going which is good.

Also you know a hello would be nice before you start promoting your own works ;)

Two notes are still a chord. Although not as "full-bodied" as standard triads. These "diads" are just as much a chord as an arpeggio.

i.e. power chords.

It is my understanding that a power chord is not in fact a chord because it contains no 3rd.

ditto from my understand a "chord" has to consist of at least three notes.

the 3rd dictates major/minor sound.

power chord without a 3rd has no major/minor sound.

POWER CHORD!!!! is it just me or was that term most certainly coined in the '80s hair metal era?

Quoted from the definition of a chord:

The sounding of two or more notes (usually at least three) simultaneously.

hey again,

The spelling error is fixed, I always get one or two that I overlook, so thx for pointing that out.

As for the "power chords" being chords or not, well they certainly are harmonies, but I was taught that Dyads can be considered chords as well so that's what I'm passing on.

And yeah I am fully aware that power chords can be played in alternative ways or on different strings, but as I designed this to be a complete beginners guide, I try to keep it simple, especially since the power chord one was only my eight post I think. I'll probably cover an article discussing chord construction more thoroughly in the future so the readers can find the different chords on different positions on their own.

That being said, thx a million for the feedback :)

PS: If my English isn't completely perfect, my apologies. This little project, other than being me working on my passion and trying to help those who can benefit from it, is also a way for me, a Belgian and first year English Lingual Sciences student, to work on his English writing

Chords don't need thirds for example suspended chords contain no thirds, neither do stacked fifths or fourths my point was merely that 2 notes is usually seen as an interval.

If you google "Define: harmonic interval" you get:

Google says:
In music theory, an interval is a combination of two notes, or the distance between their pitches. Two-note combinations are also called dyads. Although chords are often defined as sets of three or more notes, intervals are sometimes considered to be the simplest kind of chord


Which is what I was taught two notes together were and I'm pretty sure my Dads copy of the rudiments of music backs me up.

Although saying that I am sure that 2 notes or 3 is probably an area of much debate.

Fair enough. That's why this site is so great - I can learn things when I am wrong and not be treated like an idiot, lol.
