Here is another creative combination of open chords and power chords in the style of AC/DC. Notice that we use variations on the C and F open chords when we borrow notes from the scale. Also, notice that we use two different F chords. Even though they are both F major, each voicing gives a totally different feel to the riff. That's the importance of knowing the different forms of these chords!
