Power Chords-Today

Power Chords-Today Tutorial

Our Wonderful world of music is constantly in a state of change. We are influenced by other cultures, technology, and most important - each other. Searching for new expression, new emotions, and an alternative voice we explore different sounds, textures and integrate them into our music. At first it's only a handful of believers - then the sound and emotion grows. More and more players adapt the concepts and begin using these new chords, phrases and musical textures. Once again our music has changed. Ever evolving, always with the pulse on the move - that is our Western music heritage.


In the late 1980s great and not so great popular bands explored alternative chord and melodic and structures and challenged the established mainstream current in popular music. It has taken no less than ten years for these concepts to be accepted and utilized in the various forms of popular music. This includes the Established Top-Forty - Jazz - Country - Gospel - Folk - Blues and Praise forms of our popular music. The migration is slow. A special chord here and there, a New Harmony, a new feeling - given enough time it becomes a part of the mainstream culture accepted without question or comment.
