Can someone please explain to me how the fuck do I play chords like this? I'm so bad at guitar and don't know any terms for it, I'm trying to teach myself how to play but it's really frustrating.
don't start with that guitar takes the piss for the first couple weeks just go to a site like justinguitar.com.
it's a decent start and helped me. Don't do tabs yet when ur first starting out.
The end of the tab should have an o for open stings and an x for the ones you don't play. Usually with power chords it is just the 2 shown.
You need to use the lower half of your main finger to mute the thinnest strings and use the tip of it to mute the top, thickest string.
I remember when I started learning and it was a bitch, just keep at it for a few weeks and it'll be easy to play these chords
here i'll take a photo for oyu
you can either do thiis
or use two fingers as in an F chord
