Major Triads & Inversions

Get full access

In this section of Rock Guitar Level 2, we will focus on the concept of Major Triads and their inversions. A triad is a chord using 3 notes to create one overall sound. In many of the major chords you have previously learned from Guitar Tricks, their already exists triads in your musical vocabulary. Each chord we reference will have three major triads, and each of these triads is called an inversion. While each example in the lessons will have different shapes, each of them still remains the same chord. We will use the triads you already know, demonstrating their inversions from a D major chord, an A major chord, and an E major chord. We will take each lesson using string groups of three, and will follow each explanation with an example of those triads use in the rock guitar world.
