Hi, sorry I'm new at this kind of stuff. I was wondering what you call these chords, they are kind of like power chords but you move the higher string over one and mute the one in between. Like this:

-----------------------------------
-----------------------------------
---4-4-4-4-4---3-3-3---8-8-8-
---x-x-x-x-x----x-x-x---x-x-x---
---2-2-2-2-2---1-1-1---6-6-6-
-----------------------------------

Thanks guys,
-Ian

Octaves. The only notes played are the root note and the octave, hence the name.

EDIT: Octaves can take other shapes than those, but I've seen very little use of them on the higher strings. Just FYI.

Its the Lydian mode; formed in Eastern Arabia when the Persians invaded England.

Thanks, haha I should've looked at the notes. Didn't think it would be that simple.

Thanks again,
