The shape of the power chord never changes, only its position on the neck of the guitar.

Remember to maintain your fingering position as you lift the pressure to glide from one power chord to the next, adjusting for the fact that the frets get smaller the further up the neck you go.

By memorizing the F, G, A, B, C, D, and E positions, you have built a solid foundation from which you will be able to learn to understand how the guitar 'works' up the neck.

This understanding will open up whole new worlds for you and your playing!
