Playing tips and techniques are….If you are using neck pick up, around the 12th fret, this works well, if using bridge pick up you can play close to the bridge, try playing in different areas around each pick up. Also you are probably aware that for best octave sounds, hit the notes accurately and try not to hit adjacent strings as you are playing. Power chords usually work best between open strings and down to about the 8th fret, these tips will start you off, Just experiment.
