You take a root note, and go up a perfect fifth. Play these two notes together.

i guess my music theory is wrong? ive got my book infront of me and tells me a chord is 3 or more notes and the formula for a power cord is Root + 5 + 8 (octave)

In that case, the note on the D string is an octave above the root note, so technically it's still a power chord.

Usually it is 3 or more notes ie. A basic triad is the root, 3rd, and 5th.
Power chords, possibly among others, are exceptions.

I didn't think a powerchord counted as an actual chord though, as there are only two notes?

Those are only two notes. The third note is just an octave higher from the root.

Wrongasaurus Rex, bro.

Triad= Root, 3rd, 5th.
Power Chord= Root, 5th, Octave. Octave is the same tone as the root.

Even without the added octave, it is still a powerchord because it is still a root and it's fifth.

Dude, if he doesn't know what a power chord is, he doesn't know his degrees.

But still, you are correct.

Triads are any chord with only 3 notes... there are 3 kinds of Triads:

Major: R+3+m3 or better known R+3+5

Minor: R+m3+3 or better known R+m3+5

Power:R+5+8

Funny, I'm gonna need your source for that.
BECAUSE YOU'RE WRONG.
Mos def wrong.


lol... it says in there a triad is concretly a chord with 3 notes! the root note a 3rd and a 5th, if its a minor or major 3rd is what determines the tipe of triad... BUT a power chord (which is also a triad due to the 3 notes) is different because it has no 3rd it has a perfect 5th and an octave.... but none the less it is still a triad. The root of the word triad is "Tri" as in 3

a powerchord only has two notes man, it's an exception to other chords because it's not a real "chord";real chords need three or more notes.

captain_jack, that's an A bar chord, not a G.

a bar chord is typically notes played across on all strings, but a three note chord, i.e. g(3,5,5) is not a powerchord.

kirbyrocknroll, as i said, a powerdchord is only two notes, and in fact is not a true chord.

A power chord usually has the root note, perfect fifth an the octave (whihc is the root note higher up). However, it's possible to play a power chord using only the root note and the perfect fifth.

To be a barre chords it would need another note: major third, minor third, major second, perfect fourth are among the most common.
