you need to give us more than that, what are you having trouble doing with them

well, you can rake your finger across them (or pick) or you can pop them

A chord is 3 notes or more played at once I believe. Put your finger on the 3rd fret of the top string and strum the top two strings... 3 times....

Yea to be a chord it has to have at least three notes. Just strum them together at the same time...
#11
Practice it and it will come, it just takes some concerted practice effort.

Not to split hairs here on definitions, but a power chord is made up of two notes, the root and the fifth. Yes, a power chord is really a harmonic interval or dyad, but most of us would consider G5 (a power chord) a chord.

So everyone is right...in a sense...

A chord consists of three or more notes that can be arranged in thirds.
What you're playing is not a chord, but a m6, which is just two notes played together.

I'd personally just play the two notes with two of my fingers at the same time, I can't really see the problem.

Also known as a double-stop, correct?

Keep Practising, because powerchords on bass can sound really good if played well.

I sort of use my nails to strum them, which gives a really clean tone. I'll record myself one day perhaps.

No such thing.
It's a minor 6th.

Augmented 5ths exist ^
whether its an augmented 5th or minor 6th depends on the note surely?
#22
^ As far as I can recall, it's only acceptable to call intervals that name in a chord situation.
If you'll call this interval an augmented 5th on a test, you'd probably lose points (I've tried), so the common name is minor 6th.

I was simply proving a point. It can be either. It entirely depends upon the context.

However, he was saying it couldn't be a power chord, I just pointed out it could be.

Yeh, going with what Jazz_rock_feel said, i reckon itd depend on the notes involved, because what note it is will surely (unless it's an accidental) by chosen according to the key? ie. C to G-sharp is an augmented 5th in the key of c maj, but a minor 6th in c minor, as it would be C to Aflat

I have a book, which is basically identical to those guitar gig-bag chord books for bass. I tend to play chords by racking my thumb, or with a pick, if you can manage it, a kinda triple pop can sound really nice
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...
