Umm...it depends on what sound you're going for. Downstrokes can create this really great, almost staccato effect, while down and up will give you flow and you can play the chords faster. You should be able to do both. :-P

i can tell you one thing........you want to make sure you can do either without even thinking twice about it.........that being said, just keep practicing man............you absolutely need to know both.......whatever you want to do first is up to you.

verbs are action words, so when you do somehting it is an action and a verb, cause they are the same thing. You practice, a verb, and practice is the action.

"Practice" is when you use it for a NOUN
"Practise" is when you use it for a VERB

I love how this thread is now discussing grammar instead of the TS' lame question about Power Chords.
