Chapter 3: More Power to You – How to expand standard power chord forms

In this chapter, Mike presents some simple and effective ways to make your metal rhythm guitar parts sound bigger, heavier and more powerful and sinister, either in live performance or when overdubbing and layering tracks in the studio. Building upon a typical metal-style two-bar riff, Mike shows you ways to thicken up the sound of basic power chords by doing things like doubling the fifth below the root note and/or adding the ninth on top two create “stacked” power chords and huge-sounding, “progressive metal-style” sus2 voicings, with examples inspired by players like Dream Theater’s John Petrucci.
