So I have been playing for about a year now; actually playing. Up until then all I played was Stay Together For The Kids by Blink 182. (Very easy song.) So I consider actually starting to play was about January of 08'. All my musical roots come from post-punk bands so with all my influences I tend to use a lot of power chords. But it's getting old and I want to expand.

So I know how to use power chords and I use lots of chords that are like 5 on one string and 6 on the next string up; whatever kind that would be. Other than that I use chords that are sort of combined like:


But this is all I know. Well, I know some actual chords but they don't work for what I play. I am trying to find something new to use to expand my playing...
