Hey i was wondering if weezers songs are primarily played with barre chords or open..i mean..is it more plausable to play an electric guitar using power chords and barre chords..because when i play regular chords on my electric..regular open chords..they sound really choppy and not what weezers sound is supposed to sound like..i was just wondering..

Power chords, man.
I mean, this is as simple as watching any live video of theirs.
but seriously i mean..i heard that power chords a really good for electric distortion for these types of songs..but do they really correlate?..ive heard people in the weezer forum, which ive posted my songs..and they're like " wow you can play power chords, im impressed ( sarcastically)" i was like " wtf dude" i dont know which to play..open chords sound bad with distortion..but barre chords sound better..ive also heard that power chords are ACTUAL chords..im so confused

I guess you've never played Say It Aint So?
It's not just a simple one or the other answer.
It really depends on the tune you're playing or what section of the song etc.
Don't be so rigid about it. Try lots of different chord types.
Well, say it ain't so is power except for the riff and the verse (I was just talking about most of the album)
