Power chords do have a place for flavour in a compisition of chords or a musical cresendo and for the bulding of a theme.They are just too easy and used to often and become a crutch to the young and the lazy.Use all the fingerings you can full, power suspended , and even broken chords have a place.A well composed peice of music relies on many forms of cords to accent a melody,a melody is more than root ,fith and root but in the same token root,fifth and root can give the beauty of power were none would be in a full chord. I could write 100,000 words on chords and theory of music but i won't lol. Feel what you play and play what you feel you will be forever set free.

But if as you say the truth is fluid that the truth is subjective then maybe you can fight the system. As long as just one person refuses to be broken refuses to bow down” “But can you win?” “Every time I say NO”
