    I've been teaching myself the guitar over the past couple of months. Mostly just simple tunes that use power chords. I'm attempting this tune here, but the tabs I've found can't agree on the right chords. Can someone tell me which chords this song utilizes?

    Teach yourself to tie a knot and hang yourself.

    It's probably your guitar. You need a really expensive one to sound good at all.

    One trick to find the key of a song is to hum... listen to the song and try to hum a note that will sound right any place in the song... then try to find that note on your guitar.

    From there you have the root note and chord and should be able to figure out the rest.

    Ok, let me ask you this. (I'm an ex-drummer so I know fuck-all about guitar chords.) If I find the root, can I play any song with the standard power chords hand position? I mean, it won't sound as full, but the basic chord will be there?

    Most likely if it is a rock-type song, sure. Power chords are just an abbreviated full chord.
