Lesson 8.8 – The Open A Power Chord
Just like with the open E Power Chord, to play an open A Power Chord, all you need to do is play the first 3 strings of the Open A Major Chord. The chord grid is shown below.
Note the chord grid shows the added top root note (A). You have the option of playing the A and E notes only, as Padraig does in the video – or you can add the top root.
