  5. Power Chord Basics II (#622) - Page 6 by WholeNote Staff (593)
    Here's another example of this concept using a Kinks - Van Halen example. Measures 1-4 use full power chords and it sounds OK. But measures 5-8 substitute a single note G for the G power chord and it flows a bit better...

  13. Heres A Way To Practice Your Fingers (#3710) - Page 1 by Adel Abu Hamdeh (754)
    Heres a descending lick. Try to hit the strings every time you move your finger to practice your coordination. You have to get fast with both your left and right hand. Test yourself and see how fast you can get.
