The Beauty in the BASSics: Triads – Part 2

This week in The Brown’stone on No Treble, we’ll continue with our study of triads and inversions (be sure to check out Part 1). I’ll take you through all the triad shapes created on the fretboard by demonstrating a series of exercises that alternate between the major and minor triads, along with their inversions.

You’ll be sure to gain a deeper understanding of the beautiful melodicism found within these three little notes.
