Hey

I was curious to see how you all learned triads, chords, and inversions all around the fretboard. Do you pick one chord at a time and find every inversion of it all over the board or do you use another method?

I 1st learned what they were/how they are constructed. Then I learned the voicings on the guitar neck in various keys. I did spend some time memorizing the triad/inversion shapes on the fretboard

Thanks munky that link helped a lot

step1
Define an Interval. An interval is the distance between two notes. We measure from the lower note to the higher one. Intervals come in different qualities and size. Qualities are If the notes are sounded successively, it is a melodic interval. If sounded simultaneously, then it is a harmonic interval.
#
Step 2

Define keywords for interval qualities: Major, Minor, Perfect, Augmented, and Diminished.
#
Step 3

Define interval sizes: 2nds, 3rds, 4ths, 5ths, 6th, 7th, Octave, 9ths, 10ths, 11ths, 12ths, 13ths, 14th,Octave. C to E is a Major 3rd
#
Step 4

Find the new interval size. Lets invert C to E, a Major 3rd. When Inverting, the sum of the two sizes will equal 9. Thus, 2nds become 9ths, 3rds become 6ths, 4ths become 5ths, etc. So, E to C is 6th, but what kind of sixth?
#
Step 5

Find the new quality. Major become minor, Augmented becomes diminished, and perfect stays perfect. C to E is a Major 3rd, E to C is a minor 6th.

Step 6

I agree with munky;

Learning the triad shapes is an extremely good base;

Especially if you are going to sightread it is very usefull.

2nds become 9ths

An inverted second is a seventh.
he doesnt mean inverted; he means that counting from the scale, the 2nd and the 9th are the same note. int he key of C the 2nd and the 9th are both Ds.

If he meant that then there'd still be errors:

If 2nds become 9s, then 3rds would become 10ths, then 4ths would become 11ths, etc...

Either way, he's wrong.

These aren't errors.........

9th = 2nd + octave
10th = 3rd + octave
11th = 4th + octave

Read his post again. He says

2nd becomes 9th
3rd becomes 6th
4th becomes 5th

It should either be:
2nd becomes 7th
3rd becomes 6th
4th becomes 5th

Or:
2nd becomes 9th
3rd becomes 10th
4th becomes 11th

Yeah, I misunderstood you, sorry. I thought you were saying that 2 = 9 3= 10...ect was incorrect.

I agree that in terms of inversions..

2nd becomes 7th
3rd becomes 6th
4th becomes 5th

and in terms of compound intervals..

2nd becomes 9th
3rd becomes 10th
4th becomes 11th
