Gang, I've been learning the guitar for say, 6 months self-taught. Last two week I'd been practicing triad chords like hell. I decided to put them into a love song of mine that I wrote specifically for real chords. And you know what? It just didn't sound right. It didn't send out the right message I wanted to send out.
So what now? Should I continue learning real chords or stick to something I'm much better at, power chords? Also, with punk/garage/rock and roll, what do you think is the triad chord/power chord ratio being used?

imo full chords are 60's fuzz nugget psych folk neo garage punk, power chords should be left for the likes of Green Day & Nickelback. In answer to your question....either way your going to learn how to play both.
Actually there are no power chords in Blue Orchid..
He's using an POG octave generator, and he used his whammy live
well the sonics used power chords but stuff like gloria is proper chord
on th subject real chords sound more garage it depend ie A7 sounds garagy the way i play it but other voicings less so ,also g open is very un garagy
i like to use a mix
