The Beauty in the BASSics: Triads – Part 1

In this lesson, we’ll look at the different ways to approach the major and minor triads. I’ll give you some straightforward but beautiful exercises that are sure to leave you with a better understanding of triads in general. You also stand to gain a deeper appreciation for melodies you can create using these three little notes.

I hope you enjoy the lesson.

    Rich Brown is excellent: structured approach, slow in a good way, (as opposed to some No Treble contributors who talk fast and play at the same time, quite annoying) has a great personality, and clearly loves the instrument. Thanks No Treble and thanks Rich Brown.
