  • Hello GMC friends!

    Let´s study some cool ideas that you can use in your compositions. Open triads!

    Well, first, I'm not a "neoclassical guitar player" but I´ve incorporated the idea of open triads over it. These kind of harmony sounds amazing for me. Hope you enjoy!

    Technical specifications
    Guitar: Music Maker Custom
    Strings: DR
    Plug ins: Amplitube 3 / Addictive Drums / Halion One
    Recording SW: Nuendo and some effect plug ins

    Standard tuning: E, A, D, G, B, E

    Tempo: 180 BPM

    Time signature: 4/4 and 3/4

    First, just to remember...
    Triads =
    T + 3 + 5
    3 + 5 + T
    5 + T + 3


    * in these cases it is the major triad

    In C we have :
    C + E + G
    E + G + C
    G + C + E

    Ok!

    When some of these intervals are in other octave then it´s called "Open Triad". So we get 3 more different shapes.

    T + 3 + 5
    3 + T + 5
    5 + 3 + T

    In C we have now:
    C + G + E
    E + C + G
    G + E + C


    Take a look:
    T + 3 + 5



    3 + T + 5



    5 + 3 + T



    Now jump to part 1 and let´s start to learn this composition, I´ll explain more how it's working.
