So I've been trying, with difficulty to form F sharp Triads.
I actually made one, that isn't the triad I suposse... that as a chord, sounded Craptacular.
but, arpeggiated, it is one from a metallica song and is quite eviiiiiil

B-----2--- C
D---4--4- F#
A--3----- C
E-2------ F#

Then, I did remember someone telling me about F sharps blah blah.
Anyone experience this at all and know a few themselves?
I was on my ipod earlier, so it's so time consuming without Guitar Pro.
I was working in the key of E minor.

"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

What is this I don't even?

Are you just asking how to play an F# (presumably major) chord?

F# A# C#

Forgive me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure triads are supposed to have three notes.

And 2 on the B string isn't C, thats C#
Which also isn't part of Em.
Unless you meant 2 on the G string, which would be A and also wrong.

There are 4 different F# triads.

F# Major: F#,A#,C#
F# Minor: F#,A,C#
F# Diminished: F#,A,C
F# Augmented: F#,A#,C##

The one you posted would be F# diminished without the third. Tritones, in your case F# to C, can sound crunchy especially in the lower register where you were playing it which may explain why you liked it better with the notes played seperately rather than together.

Yeahhhh.
I was trying to form F# A C, the Fsharp minor.

Yeah, A is part of the F# minor.
That's why I wanted it in there.
I put B instead of G, which confused me lol.

but the diminished I formed was not part of the search for the F# minor, just another chord I stumbled on.
I would have replied earlier, but my internet was down last night

F# minor is F# A C#, not F# A C

the chord you have posted is an F#dim

All chords sound "NICE" in the right context. Just go on google, and search chordbook. Click the first link, than click guitar chords.

An F# minor chord is an F# minor chord, no matter how you voice it it's always going to sound pretty much the same - that's the whole point of a chord, a group of notes that gives you a certain sound, chosen on the basis of the harmonic intervals between them.

Just play the notes F# A C# anywhere on your guitar and you'er playing an F# minor chord.
