whenever i play powerchords i use my index and pinky.
but when the frets get closer together i change to my index and the 3rd finger.

is this normal?

always use ring plus inderx no matter where
and also, when you add the octave on (ie 3 note power chord)
then you add the pinky on
the middle finger is there for muting strings above it
for eg if ur playing a A5 on the open a string
ur middle finger goes up and mutes the low E string

It doesn't matter what finger you use for the powerchord's. I know people who use Pinky, and people who use 2nd and some who use 3rd. dw about what you use.

Unless your doing what he said ^^

It's fine, whatever is comfortable for you is fine, don't worry about what is "normal".

yeah i use my index and pinky and its been workin' out fine for me.When i have to mute a string,like say to play a D to D on the A and G strings i just lay my index finger across the D string.

I get a 3 tone chord with my index and pinky

I just take two with the pinky

it helps it has been broken twice

Power Chords are awesome. As awesome as a goat standing on the back of a cow.

Number two poster is right. At least for me he is. As long as it sounds good and it's comfortable for you, do whatever you want.

yeah whatever is most natural to you. I mainly use first and ring finger, sometimes i switch to first and pinky though if the frets are more than 3 apart.
