Watch the Power chords and Riffs online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Rock Guitar 8: Advanced Rhythm Principles

Power chords and Riffs - Perfomance is a video guitar lesson presented by Jennifer Batten and is sourced from Rock Sauce for Rhythm Guitar.


As soon as you play the C# power chord on beat one, you switch gears to play muted single notes. After getting the parts down, the most important element is the swingin' groove. A lot of the notes are very staccato. There are also some ghost note upbeats in the V chord that help the swing feel along. Those notes are not well pronounced but their purpose is more percussive oriented.
