Absolute beginner guitar students can use this movable 2 finger hand shape to compose a chord progression.
By sliding the "power chord" shape to different frets along the E string, students can create up to 12 different chords.
Each chord consists of Root, 5th and Octave Root. Lacking the 3rd, power chords can substitute any major, minor or 7th chord as long as the 5th is not augmented or diminished.
This assignment requires no alternate tuning, or string removal.
Suggestion: use stickers to number frets along the back of the neck. (color coding helps)
Hint: use the key to the right to identify chords to learn existing songs.
