I am fairy new to the guitar. I only currently know the basic A-G maj/min chords at the bottom of the neck. Is there any easy way of identifying & transposing (with a capo) any popular songs power chords into 'bottom end' hand shapes so I can play along with anything I want?

many thanks in advance..
all you need to do is figure out what root note the power chord is, and make it into a regular chord, such as if they're playing an A-root power chord at the 7th fret, that's an E (or Em depending on what key you're in), because the seventh fret of the A, or root note, is an E.
Everyday things change..

Basically they stay the same.
