i was wondering what kind of chords bands like lynyrd skynyrd, zz top, red hot chili peppers, 3 doors down, and matchbox 20 use when its not just power or barre chords. like the weird ones or whatever. also what would help is just the chords that get most used in music today. thanks a lot for the help.

The bands sometimed use different tunings, too, to chords in different positions.

Probably 7th, 9th, 13th chords. Although those are like jazz/blues chords.
*Taylor 214ce Acoustic
*Fender Highway One Honey Blonde Strat (Fralin Pickups)
*Epiphone Zephyr Regent (Gibson '57 Humbucker)
*Vox 847 Wah
*Fulltone Fulldrive 2 MOSFET
*Fender Blues Deluxe Amp

He's not going to have a clue of what you're talking about...


Basically, the chords I mentioned are used in blues and jazz music. What do you think is a "normal" chord? G or C or something? I don't know it's kind of difficult to explain, check out this site though:

what is 1 3 5 and all of that mumbo jumbo? I took lessons and I didn't quite understand what that meant.

1 3 5 is relating to the notes in the chord.

1 = the root (the note the chord is named after
3 = 3rd note in the scale of the root note
5 = 5th note in the scale of the root note
