In this lesson, we take a look at closed voiced triads on the top 3 strings, open voiced triads, a method for learning new chord voices and how to make licks out of open voice triads.
Remember the diatonic triads in a major key have these qualities.
I MA - ii mi - iii mi - IV MA - V MA - vi mi - Vii Dim
MA: 1, 3, 5
mi: 1, b3, 5
Dim: 1, b3, b5
Root Position - Tonic / root note in bass1st inversion - 3rd in bass
2nd inversion - 5th in base
When learning a new chord voice, be conscious of where the tonic or root note is, and harmonize that note diatonically on the same string.
