Building Triadic Arpeggios

Pages: 1 2 3 4 5

Hi all and welcome once again. its been a while so lets get into it.

This lesson will cover the TRIAD, not just the three note chord but the arpeggiated form of the triad. By building on the triad you can create something very interesting and can be a very useful in expanding your visualizing the fretboard, increase your facility along the fretboard and give your chops a workout!

Take a look at the example and you will see a major triad, D major to be exact. To review quickly, a major triad formula is: (1st degree of the scale, the third, and the fifth), in this case D-F#-A. This arpeggiated example shows that the root or first degree of the scale is on the bottom and the arpeggio is played along two strings and just like everything else pertaining to playing the guitar this arpeggio can move along the whole length of the fretboard.
