[Lesson No. 10 was originally posted last week. But because of the holidays, we're re-running it today. Tune in next week for a brand new lesson.]

Today we're going to learn how to play power chords. We touched on a simpler version in an earlier lesson, but now it's time to learn the real deal. We'll also learn "Louie Louie" to help you practice your power chords.

As always, you can hit our YouTube page for "high quality" video or just watch the normal quality here. If you missed our older lessons, check them out below. And don't forget to drop a comment if you've got an idea of other things you want us to cover in future lessons.
