Watch the Bob Barker online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from 50 Metal Guitar Licks You MUST Know

The name power chord implies a vulgar display of just that--POWER! That said, it might come as a surprise to discover these nuclear harmonic explosive devices can be just as powerful when played on higher strings such as the D and G strings. Evidence of this decree can can be heard in the works Adam Jones [Tool], George Lynch [Dokken] and the great Jake E. Lee [Ozzy Osbourne, Badlands] to name few. This riff calls upon the vibe of Jake's work in such Ozzy classics as "Bark at the Moon" and the hit that brought back the Oz-man in the 80's, "Shot in the Dark".
