Hey guys I want to really improve on my rythym guitar but I have been struggling with power chords that have a root on the 5th string. I have gotten advice on them but the best way I can work on them is just by practice.

So I was wondering if anybody could give me and excercises that involve 5th string root power chords that I could practice or any songs or parts of songs that you would recommend I practice.

Any help on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

Play 5th string root powerchords.

Sorry, there's not much in the way of exercises other then to do em. Practice moving em around the fretboard, practice songs that make extensive use of em (Heaven and Hell jumps chords around a lot), and just play em till you get em right. That's pretty much it.

I've mentioned this song in another thread but it might suit your purposes

Glycerine by Bush

I'm pretty sure its 4 power chords 1 on 6th string (F [133xxx]) and 3 on 5th (C [x355xx], D [x577xx] and Bb [x133xx]).

Hope that helps
