Power chords can be used as a stretching excercise for guitar players. Of course, that is if you know how to! But don't worry, I will now show you how to make use of power chords as a stretching exercise.
Guitarist, firstly form the power chord pattern 3-5-5 on the bass strings, starting with the thickest e.g E and ending with D string. Using this power chord, move up and down the frets 1 - 5. E.g 1-3-3, 5-3-3. Strum the 3 strings about times. For guitarist who are able to play 8th notes, then play it in a rhythmic way. Otherwise, simply the strum it 8 times.
Actually, it really does not matter which power chord pattern you use. The key is to play it along the top part of the fretboard. Example: within frets 1-7. Why? Because the top part of the fretboard is always harder to read as compared to the lower. Don't believe? Try it! As it is harder to reach, your fingers are going to have to stretch in order to reach them. Also by moving your power chords along the frets, you will be able to feel the stretch in your hand.
We have talked about maximising your practice time. I would say this guitar exercise would be killing 2 birds with 1 stone. Why do i say so? Because it enables you to stretch further and as well as to increase your strumming speed on your guitar! Why not take your guitar and work it out now?
