Power Chord Shifts
« Reply #15 on: July 16, 2014, 09:13:18 pm »
I understand the palm muting thing and to try it with the 12 bar blues but what about the other thing?

"Power Chord Shifts"


"Shifting Power Chords with a little lift"

How do I do that?

Can anyone give me some specific exercises to do?

I have mental health problems.

Find some songs and or riffs that use power chords... play songs you know with power chords...

Make something up... pick two power chords... both 5th string roots or 6th string roots... pick a couple of frets say the 5th and 9th...  pick a rhythm say 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 and...

Pick a beat to change the chord on say on 1 and 3... so D5 and 2 and F# and 4 and... work on the "little lift"

Do it with a metronome slow and steady...

Next time you practice pick different strings, frets, and rhythms...

I think my pallm muting on the down strokes is improving slowly, but I'm struggling with the up strokes. Somehow I can't angle my pick enough, so most of the time I hit only one or two strings too hard. Did anyone else have this problem? Any suggestions?
