Ok. So im looking at chord charts or w/e, just to bettet my knowledge. Im sure i know many, if not all of the chords out there, yet, when i look at charts, i become confused. how do i know what fret to finger on? LOL. i know this is retarded, but yeah. SEE? Tab reading makes you STUPID. oh, btw, i know there are many, but in case it matters, this is the chart i was looking at

That chart it messed up. Go find a better one like the one on the Gibson Website.
And an Open chord...it's not a power chord. it's "the proper way" to play a chord
example: G Open Chord
e 3
B 3
G 0
D 0
A 2
E 3
Gear:
Epiphone G-400 Ebony
Line-6 UberMetal, EchoPark
Boss RC-2 Loop Station
Traynor YCV50Blue, Bass Mate 25, Guitar Mate 15

that chart eats faeces

There are most certainly not the same thing. They share the same notes, but then again a hamburger and vomit could share the same molecular composition.


Need a laugh?

all those chords are at the nut end of the fretboard, if you had to move up it would say

uh...you're all stupid! the chart is called OPEN CHORDS!!! they all take place w/in the first 4 frets!

There's nothing wrong with that chart, it's a perfectly straightforward chord chart with the nut at the top rather than the side. The dots are the fretted notes, the numbers are the suggested finger to use and "x's" are the strings you don't play.
Actually called Mark!

yup, the top line is the nut. You can turn any of them into barre chords by replacing the nut with your index finger and moving the shape around.
