" 5 " Chords - also known as ' power ' chords or
' no third ' chords - are made up of just a root note and a fifth.
By doubling up these two notes you can make up complete 6 string chords in some keys
Try using this E5 chord in place of either Emaj or Em - it can sound fuller, stronger or more jangly
E5 is made up of E ( root ) and B ( fifth ) - see the diagram for the full six string versions and the tab for some other shapes.
