It's OK, no problem if you mean to argue.
If you were to play a C major using a G as the lowest note, you would be playing it with a 5th inversion, and there would not be a need, in theory, to even play a C note at all.
Like I said, you are technically right, although it's conventionally considered a different interval even though they are the same.
It's the same principle for when you are using a 2nd interval over a 9th; for this reason is that you have, for example, Xsus2 chords and X9th chords, even though they have the same note as the "modification".

I'm glad you liked the lesson, polak!
Technically, you would be right, as the root note is the same that the note played on the 4th string. However, it's conventionally assigned that the root note is the lowest, and in the case of the 2nd position, the note on the 4th string would be an "octave" of said note.
Thanks!

Me too, I think power chords are the best, and definitely the meat and bones of rock.
Actually, I think Deftones dive a lot into the four-string power chords (number 5), but maybe you are right as I'm not that into them.
Let me know if you would like me to cover any other subject around power chords!

Yes, knowing how to calibrate your guitar yourself is also very useful in my opinion. I'll add your suggestion to my queue.
The height of the strings is usually a personal preference, though there are clear tendencies regarding the preferred styles of the player. I like them to have a kind of "medium" height of around 3-4 mm (around 1/8") which is pretty flexible for both strumming chords as well as shredding.
