3 String Chords on the Guitar
These Level 1 Chord Exercises help you work on 3 note chords. First, because you’re a beginner and they are easier. And second because they may help you see chords in a different light.
When playing a chord you do not have to use all six strings. Three is enough. And, in the case of "power chords" 2 is all it takes.
Technically speaking a major chord is a triad consisting of the 1, 3 and 5 tones of the major scale. For example, C major consists of C-E-G, or some "inversion" of those notes.
Power chords normally consist of the 1 and 5 tones played on two lower strings.
