Welcome to lesson 1 of this Electric Guitar Starter Course!
In this lesson, I will show you how to play the two easiest power chords on guitar. We will then learn an easy riff and play it along to a rock style backing track!
Playing along to the jam tracks is so important as this check your timing, improves your skills and is the part of guitar that is the most fun!
You can get the TAB for this lesson here. To get the TAB for each of the following lessons you need to purchase the full course here.
Remember, with power chords, you can play two or three strings without changing the sound much. This is because the extra note added is the octave of the lowest note, so you're just doubling up the same note but at a higher pitch. Either 2 or 3 string power chords are generally interchangeable and are the players choice.
OK, here we go with lesson 1 on easy rock style power chords!

Introduction to Guitar TAB
Guitarists don’t need to read traditional notation, instead we have Tablature, aka TAB. TAB is a graphic representation of what frets we are playing on what string on the guitar.
Each horizontal line represents a string; each number represents a fret on that string.
