  • Welcome to this triad study!

    What are triads? Triads are arpeggios made out of three notes: the root, 3rd and 5th.
    In this lesson, we'll develop some ideas using the triads found in the A Major scale.
    To do that we'll take the notes of that scale and construct triads on each tone of that scale.

    That gives us the following 7 triads to work with:

    A Major
    B min
    C# min
    D Maj
    E Maj
    F# min
    G# min b5

    Memorize the following triad shapes that I suggest and then work your way through the examples.
    Triads are fun and very helpful to create melodic leads.

    Oh, one last thing, I threw in there a more complex arpeggio on the first lick. Instead of playing a D Major triad, I extended that arpeggio to 4 notes adding the 7th. That's the only exception...

    Have fun!
