Hi guys. I was trying to play this song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xr-zAMtGXXw by this tab http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/b/bad_brains/dont_bother_me_tab.htm and found hard to change chords on this part
e|----------|
B|----------|
G|-----12----|
D|-10-12-13-|
A|-10-10-13-|
E|--8-------11-|
I allways stop the guitar sound when i have to change to that second chord on higher strings.. So maybe you could give some advices on fast power chords changing? Like using different fingering or something? Or should i just practise using the same shape of fingering all the time?
Thanks

Just practice it at a slower speed over and over until you can do it. Other than that just check that your technique isn't terribly flawed and you should be fine

well, if you wanna make it easier try tuning you guitar to drop d so you can do a one finger power chord, so... once you tune you guitar to drop d all you need to do is...

I don't care if you're joking or not.

Ditch the octave to start with and just play the root and fifth. Then play the first power chord with your index and ring finger or index and middle (if you have big enough hands). Play the second power chord with your ring finger and pinky, then play the third power chord with your index and ring finger again. You'll only have one position shift that way instead of two.
