Pete Townshend’s rhythm playing used many stereotypical rock technique, but always in service of the song. Townshend always crafted his guitar parts in fit within the overall song arrangement!

He used power chord shapes & open string pedal tones like other rock guitarists. But he also played very specific chord voicings, often with open chord shapes, triads & inversions moved up & down the neck to achieve melodies with his guitar parts.
