>Power chords just aren't an element of R&B.

One thing about those definitions I posted--none of them allow for 
development.  According to the references, R&B was limited to a 20 year time 
period and then transmuted to soul at the end of the sixties.  It'd be 
interesting to trace the development.  Obviously the rock bands picked up 
the technique, but where else did it go?  Funk, I gather from Mark's post.  
Then what?  Rap?

What is that stuff called these days that say, Christina Aguilera sings?
