(no 3) Chords
« on: May 21, 2009, 08:40:22 PM »
Would someone like to elaborate on the no 3 chords? I see the A2(no3) quite often and honestly play the A2. I was just wondering what it is. I will assume that it may be a guitar chord and is played somehow from the 3 fret???

may also be noted as Asus2 or A2

It's just the Root and the 5th, no 3rd - so - for example -

C5(no 3rd) =  C  G
     - also can be played as -
C2 = C D G

Known as a "power chord" among guitarists. Used in Israel's YOU ARE GOOD ("You are good, all the time" part) and rock-anthem CCM, mostly...

The power chord is the 1-5 only. If u add in the 2, technically u no longer have a power chord.
Real musicians play in every key!!!

True - but you know how keyboard players like to stick extra notes and changes in...

piano players refer to the power chord as being 1, 5, and 7

Sometimes you'll see the no3 when you have to play a major or dominate 11th chord. The Major 3rd and 4 generally do not sound good together unless it is a minor 3rd with the 11. A Major 3rd that is present will usually be accompanied by a #11, otherwise it will be left out or suspended for harmonic purposes.

Yep.

I have gospel sheet music that use this formula.

How is a 2 note chord a "power chord"? Is it just because of guitar players penchant for effects?To me ,"2" chords seem kinda lame irrespective of how you voice them,would rather have a few more voices. Why not a 9th? if you spread the chord out,have a little more juice-of course dropping the 3rd messes you up on whether it's a M/m chord.

The 1 and 5 are power chords that were popular in the eighties on the guitar. You probably use two note chords as passing phrases all the time and don't realize. Maybe not the 1 and 5, but the root and Major/minor 3rd.

Power Chords (just 1+5) are used a lot by Guitarists - and are voiced down in the Bass Clef, so they sound less muddy in that range than closer-voiced triads.

In contrast, lots of Jazz guitarists use Treble-range voicings way up on the neck, so they can cluster more of those 'color' tones together...
