After you strum the 1st Power chord, you release it then hold it down, then strum again.

~ If you don't get what I mean, then listen to this part of the song. In order to
play a 
any chord, you need to hold down your stings and strum, since it's seperated ( 
) It means to press down, strum, then release, to give it that really short rock
strumming sound. Sorry if I'm making it hard, but it'll sound better this way.

                       I hope this is okeii, :]
