Watch the Power chords and Riffs online guitar lesson by Jennifer Batten 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.
