If I am playing a song that calls for the following B flat power chord...

_________
_________
_3_______
_3_______
_1_______
_________

Technically I could use this one instead, right?

_________
_________
_________
_8_______
_8_______
_6_______

I just wanted to know because I learned a song "wrong", at least not the way the artist played it but it sounds the same and as far as I can tell it is the same b flat power chord so whats the difference since I already went through all the work to learn it one way.

Am I way off or right on? Cause if I am right certain things are starting to make sense to me, if not back to the drawing board...

Yup, if you're in standard tuning, it's the exact same chord, so you can play it either way. Whatever is easier for you.

the power chord notes are the same so it's the same chord...

sometimes depends on the guitar...
sometimes sounds better 1-3-3...sometimes 6-8-8...

well either yes, but with some guitars the lower stringed ones sound less "powerful"

Yeah, that's the exact same notes. The only difference is the tone that you get from the G string compared to the low E, and that's personal preference.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.
