The Beauty in the BASSics: Triads – Part 3

This week in The Brown’stone on No Treble, our study of triads continues. We’re taking the lessons learned in our last episode to create beautiful chords on bass.

Not into playing chords? No problem. I’ll show you how you can use these shapes to play full chords, and we’ll use those same shapes to play bass lines.

I think you’re going to enjoy this one.
