Harmonizing with triads
Triads and guitar chord inversions. Play 3 note guitar chord inversions
In this lesson, you will learn how to play triads, (three note chords). The illustrations below, include the A major, A minor, A diminished and A Augmented guitar chord inversions. These are a must to learn and understand.
The A major chord has the notes of A C# and E.
In the first measure below, you start on the 5th fret, which is the A note and you play the notes of A C# and E. ie. 5-4-2.
In the 2nd measure, you play the A major chord, but start on the C# note, fourth fret. Notes C#, E and A. ie 4-2-2.
In the 3rd measure, you start on the 7th fret, which is the E note. Notes E, A and C#. ie. 7-7-6.
You should be able to figure out the next sequence of notes. All of the chords have been included with tablature. Play all of the chords up and down the fret-board. In the next illustration, you will learn to play the guitar chord inversions using the A minor chord.
The illustration below shows you how to play the A minor chord inversions. Once you learn the A chord and each inversion, you can move each fingering up 2 frets and convert the chord to the B minor chord. You can use some of the blank guitar tablature forms to figure out each chord
