Rock Foundations
Use more than one guitar to create a great rhythm bed and add a simple bass line.
Introduction to 5th chords
The 5th chord originated in in rock music... or did it? Take a quick look at the history of  5th chords, also called power chords, in this lesson.
Acoustic Rhythm Enhanced With Powerchords
Watch as we progressively lay a number of guitars on top of a simple two chord rhythm played on acoustic guitar. This will give you great ideas for using more than one guitar in your own songs. The end result is pretty cool!
A Simple Bass Line Behind 5th Chords
Add open string bass notes to a simple guitar rhythm. We'll start with an easy guitar and bass combo. After that see how a few adjustments on either instrument can build depth to your bed.
Powerchords - different styles for different effect.
Start layering a song further with more power chord ideas added to a newtwo chord rhythm. This lesson adds more guitars playing 5th chords with slightly different arrangements. The end result is rather surprising. Sound like 3 guitars? You decide.
More Powerchords - close together or far apart?
Starting with a simple two chord progression listen to the effect of adding a 5th chord track where the movement is tight, compared to one where the movement is quite spacious. Both versions are built with using root notes for each pair of chords on the same strings only.
Guitar and Bass - working together
Based on two chords only, learn how just a guitar and bass can create a great, full sound. Perfect for a three piece band. Or larger...
review - Rock Foundations
Rock foundations locked in? Let's take a quick review.
  • You should have access to, and be able to reasonably play (or compose on), at least one instrument. A knowledge of all Major and minor chords would be advantageous. And also know how to play the Major scale. Music software is an instrument :)
  • Everything you need to know will appear on screen. So, if there's a chord you don't know, don't worry. Learn as you go.
