Lesson 1: Introduction to triads
This lessons outlines the entire course and includes a demonstration of ‘Triad Study’, the end goal of Triadic Invention. Furthermore, this lesson includes a theoretical explanation of ‘Open’ vs ‘Closed’ triads. Why do we use ‘open’ or ‘spread’ triads as opposed to ‘closed’ triads? What do ‘spread’ triads allow us to do? This lesson is supplemented with two pdf files which include all A major and minor spread triads across the fretboard. Good luck!
Lesson 2: Harmonising a major scale
