So I am still pretty new, I am doing the fundamentals-1 course currently, and am on the section where I am learning simple cords, C, G, E, and Am. I have not mastered these yet, and can't move form one to the next as perfectly smooth motion yet, but this is part of my daily practice so I will get it ovet time.

I have also been playing with power chords, since they are the same shape, it is a little less finger articulation at this time, and feels slightly easier, so enjoying practing these methods as well, during my daily practice routine. Eventually I will try and use the 3rd finger, but currently focuing on only two finger power chords for now.

I have been looking for TABs to follow, although I have not come across many that are power chord specific. There seems to be a million different websites and videos about this topic. I have found some tablature too complex for my skill level, with hammer ons, pull offs, bends etc. As well as some awesome TABs that I am enjoying learning, but most of these are much too short, and are simply just a single recognizible rifff.

Is anyone aware of a good resource for TABS more specifically focused on Power-Chords? As well as longer durations, like a whole song or an intro and a chorus etc

Something I can work on mastering one section at a time, and make progess for a completed song or section and not just a 1 or 2 bar riff? Sure the Iron Man riff is classic, and cool, but I would love to have more to practice and follow along with, then that single riff, and be able to challenge myself further in learning a more complete song.

thanks for any advise

You can adapt just about any song by playing any chord as a power chord. Take 'Sweet Home Alabama'. It's mostly D, G & C. Play them as power chords!

A lot of the made easy songs have a mixture of open chords & barre or power chords.

For specific songs written with power chords you can usually find artists that have rhythm guitar parts almost exclusively written for power or barre chords. And if it's a full barre, then just do the power chord version. Examples!
