(Musicians Institute Press). A comprehensive source for learning rhythm guitar in a variety of musical styles. It covers: open chords, barre chords, and other movable shapes; strumming, fingerstyle, flatpicking and arpeggiation; common progressions and basic chord theory; triads, sixth, seventh, ninth, and many other chords; and much more.
Triads are incredibly useful on guitar, not only for building chords and arpeggios, but for soloing too, and especially soloing over chord changes. If you know your triads inside-out on the neck, youâve laid the foundations for mapping out the fretboard when creating chord progressions, rhythm parts or improvising melodically.
The tedious part is actually learning triads to start with which is why I came up with this incredibly handy method for learning triads and their inversions all over the neck in a fraction of the time it takes to learn them the standard rote way.
This book covers root, first and second inversions of the following triads: major, minor, diminished, augmented, sus2 and sus4, giving you the power to not only remember them, but use them effectively in coming up with solos, rhythm parts and many other creative applications.
The Guitar Fretwork Compendium Part I - Major & Minor Triad Shapes takes the aspiring guitarist beyond the basic chords and teaches Major and Minor triad shapes all over the fret board. For all styles of music, the lesson contained in this book is a repeatable lesson, one that can be continued over and over again using a different set of chord shapes every time. With over 200 chord diagrams included, it is essential for any guitarist who wants to expand knowledge and ability.
The ultimate objective is to train the student through repeated patterns and precise exercises, to acquire a conscious control in these techniques: the use of the whole arm for lateral freedom and arm weight, the forearm for rotation (Alberti bass and similar patterns) the wrist for flexibility in phrasing and the fingers for dexterity in passage work.
