Welcome to Open Triads In A Song Context lesson. This lesson is directly related to previous 3 lessons that covered Open Triads in G Major Scale. If you haven't checked those lessons yet, make sure you do so in order to fully grasp this lesson.
Key of this piece is G major with related E natural minor. There is one place where harmony modulates to E harmonic minor with some passing diminished chords (A and C diminished). Tempo of the piece should not be too hard to tackle altough idea here was to get you to play chord melodies with a bit of Rubato (free, up to performer) feel.
For this lesson I used my Yamaha AEX1500 guitar going through POD X3 LIVE into Nuendo. Effect I used was customized but any clean sound with good balance of EQ's and some delay would work here.
After you finish this lesson and whole open triad series, you will be able to :
- Understand how to construct open triads all across the guitar neck.
- See guitar fretboard better and learn notes on it.
- Improve your finger picking technique.
- Learn more about major scale harmony and cadences.
- Learn how to apply this material to fit your needs (improvising, comping, composing etc)
I hope you enjoyed this set of Open Triad lessons. I will see you in my next series which will cover 4 part harmony with different types of voicings.
