    I prefer the extended power chord, with the extra octave on top.

    But yeah, power chords.

    Confession time: You see the second-to-last column?

    You see the power chords there?

    You see how the two notes are one fret farther apart than in all the other columns?

    Took me forever to figure that out.

    Power Chords give me the power to make my music non-commital. I'm hiding from both the affirmative character of a major chord and the sad character of a minor chord. With Power Chords, I'm mysterious; I'm inscrutable. I'm a badass. Power Chords are the sunglasses of music. They hide what I'm feeling and what I really mean just like sunglasses hide the feeling expressed in my eyes.

    Plus, they're just two notes for the most part, and they're easy to play, and hide my lack of preparation as a musician.

    I love the way the plug pops out of the screen at you when you click on it (or maybe that's just me...) :)

    lol, yanno I've heard chords like that...ones without a major 3rd/minor 3rd voice, called ambi-chords. "Ambi" as in ambiguous as to the modality of the chord (minor or major).
