C Major Triad Inversions
Make all the note ring as long as possible.
Play in time.
Guitar Triads are some of the first chords that most guitar players learn on the guitar. Triads are built on three notes, the root, third, and fifth notes taken from the major scale. For example the C triad is C, E, and G. The first, third, and fifth, taken from a C major scale. C, D, E, F, G, A, B, C.
These three notes can be played in any order to produce a C chord. Root is C-E-G. First inversion is E-G-C. second inversion is G-C-E. This exercise is put together in a way so you can practice these inversions from all the string sets, as well as across the neck.
The first half of the exercise is playing the C chord inversions in the open position. Then moves up to the fifth, eighth, and twelfth positions and back down.
The second half are the same inversions moving across the neck of the guitar using four sets of six strings. Use the videos, the tablature, and chord blocks to connect and learn the shapes. Then, use the backing tracks to practice the chords without guitar in the tracks.
