  • Hello GMC!

    Welcome to part Triads in a song context lesson.

    Todays lesson will focus on practical ways of using triads from C major scale. We will cover 6 out of 7 triads (B diminished not covered) and use various inversions and string sets. Make sure you check out my Triads in Majos Scale Series as this lesson is directly related to whole series.

    I strongly suggest you watch Spoken video (Video 1) to better understand approach I have taken when composing this lesson. You will find A Aeolian and F Lydian in this tune. There will be 2 cadences for Aeolian and one for Lydian mode. Make sure you read my post on cadences on my theory and harmony board HERE.

    After you finish this lesson you should :
    - Know how to use triads in a song context
    - Know how to play through the whole guitar neck using all inversions of triads
    - Know how to use fingerstyle when playing triads (T I M = thumb, index , middle for each voicing)
    - Use various inversions of triads and create interesting background when accompaning singers, soloist and in songwriting.

    For this lessson I used my custom built guitar G.Papazoglou going into POD X3 Live into Nuendo. Effect I used was called Threadplate with delay taken out.

    I hope you found these series very usefull. Let me know if you have any questions via lesson feedback, private message or my personal board.

    Enjoy working with this material and see you in my next lesson!
