If you’re learning to play rock music, one of the first chords that you will learn is what is known as a power chord. A power chord is created by placing your index finger and thumb together. When you do this, a small circle of muscle on both your hands is pushed into the other fingers. This creates a stretch on the fingers which when done repeatedly will give you the power tone that you are looking for. The most famous guitarist that I know of, Eric Clapton, played a song called “Layla” with the lyrics, “I’m a rock and roll star, every time I lay down my guitar.”
There are many great rock chord forms that you can use when you are learning to play rock music. The three that I use the most are C, D, and Em. As stated above, placing your fingers together is a common rock chord form. The cool thing about these three rock chord forms is that they are easy to learn. Once you have learned them in your beginner rock guitar chord forms, you will be able to use them in all of your rock songs.
Let’s take a look at each one starting with the C. C is a fairly simple chord because it has only two notes. This makes it an easy song to learn. In my opinion, the best way to learn them is to play the C chord then move your fingers to the others on the beat. This will make it easier for you to hear the rhythm. When you are first starting out, I recommend that you start with the C so that you can get used to how it sounds.
The next type of rock chord progression we will look at is the Em. The Em chord, or inharmonious chord, is made by placing your index finger and thumb together. You use the fingers to form an “E” chord. This chord is commonly used in hard rock music. The key to remember with the Em chord is that you start on the root note and then go up.
These are the easiest rock chords for a beginner to learn. If you start using these chords, you will quickly notice that they are really easy to play. The key to remember when learning these chords is to play the higher notes before the lower ones. This will make it easier for you to transition from one note to another.
The next rock chord progression we will look at is the power chords. These are the ones you will start playing right away. When learning how to play power chords, you will start off with the A and then work your way up to the E. As with the C, you start on the root note then go up. If you find it difficult to keep up with the progressions, try putting your fingers on the chords of the progression and just play through them. That way, you can get used to the power chord changes.
Once you have mastered the power chords, you can move onto learning the fifth string and all of the other strings. In order to get a better understanding of the guitar fretboard, it helps to learn a chord progression that uses the major scale as well as some of the minor scales. Begin learning the major and minor chord progressions by playing the first two bars of each measure using the G and C chords. Then move up to the three and five bar chords. From there, move up to the seven and nine bar chords and finally finish up with the A and E chords.
Learning the guitar is easy once you learn how to read the fretboard. Once you get a good understanding of how everything works, you will be able to easily transition from one chord progression to another. Just keep in mind that progressions will take some time to learn. Once you understand the basic concepts of how the fretboard works, you will easily be able to build on your knowledge and play over any song.
