Using the notes of a D major chord (D, F#, and A,) we are going to look at all three triad inversions up the E, B, and G strings. All will be played with an open D string ringing as a reference tone. We will than use those D major triad inversions to play a rock rhythm example in the style of Pete Townsend (The Who.) Adding some overdrive and reverb, we are now able to hear these major triads in a rock guitar context.
