    Another great article. I think a lot of folks sometimes overlook the importance of muting the strings they are not using. it’s probably because they are so concerned about getting the power chord – we tend to forget the silent part of the chord. This is especially important with power chords, because they’re usually “heavy” by nature, so if you don’t do a great job of muting what you’re not using, then you’ll hear a lot of noise and unwanted harmonics, etc.

    Great article!

    Power chords were the first thing I learnt on guitar. It was great to go back to power chords with a better theoretical understanding and I really enjoyed reading about the different voicings because it actually makes sense to me now but it wouldn’t have a couple years ago.
