Power Chords E-G-B-A
This power chord progression begins with an open E shape that is the open sixth string, and the second fret on the fifth and fourth strings. The second shape moves to the G power chord. Play this chord with your first finger on the sixth string third fret, third finger fifth string fifth fret, and the fourth finger on the fifth fret of the fourth string. The B power chord is the same shape on the seventh fret, the A power chord is the same shape on the fifth fret. These power chord fingerings are movable shapes that can be moved anywhere on the neck. They are also a staple in rock and pop music.
Palm mute all the eighth notes in the chord progression, with the exception of the very first beat. The first note of each measure is not palm muted, and accented with a little extra attack on it. Also, use all down strokes though the whole progression, this will also help to make the chords sound a bit heaver, and will add more of a driving effect to the progression.
