|Intervals||1 - 5|
|Notes in D 5||D - A|
Power Chords are diatonic chords without third interval notes, used often in heavy metal, and generally whenever you play under heavy distortion. Since power chords have no thirds, they are neither major nor minor.
Here are 6 voicings of the D5 guitar chord, with a chord chart to each voicings' fingering.
Notice that the root note of a chord will be it's main, and lowest note. However, this will not be true for chord inversions.
Pick the single notes to the chord when first learning it, making sure there are no dead notes.
