    dude it is actually the scale tht helps u understand. I am not going into the details yet, but it is simple like that. Power chords which are you talking abt lie in the low E string (thickest one). If u play any fret on the E, lets say 2nd, then u play 4th on A & D string. Generally, U play one fret on the E, and on the next two strings, u skip 2 frets and then play them. It must be strummed while the other 3 strings muct be silent. E chord is a good example of power chords. U see, there it is (022000) but if u silent the other 3, it goes (022xxx) and it is a power chord. (133xxx), (244xxx) (355xxx), they are all power chords. Give it a try, and tell me if it sounded good. May be i will deliver a lecture abt scales & power chords here soon. See ya.

    Well Power choard are really one of the easiest chords to play . U just need to practice

    Each power chord is :-

    1) The Root Note
    2) The 5th Note (of the scale)
    3) 8th (octave note) if required

    Here is an example :-

    Eminor scale is : E F# G A B C D E

    Root Note is : E
    5th Note is : B
    8th ocatve note is : E

    So considering the Standard E A D G B E tuning to play the E power Chord

    D|--2---------| E
    A|--2---------| B
    E|--0---------| E

    Its very easy once you get the hang of it . Hope what ive told you above helped .

    no problem dude. we're here to help. And as far as i can understand ur strumming problem, it is that u only have to strum those strings which have the power notes, i.e., the first three strings. You dont strum the other 3 strings. And if u mean that u cannot strum properly, so for that matter i have only one word 4 u. PRACTICE... with rhythm. thats very important. Keep ur rhythm slow in the beginning, but continuous. If you distort a note, dont break the rhythm. Keep it going. People improve their fretting hand, but dont work on their picking. Its gonna cause problems in the long run. Get hold of a metronome if u can and use it. Peace
