Try the "Roni Ben Hur" course. triads are one of the most important items in this course. I believe it costs about 15 euros. CD included.


Thanks for the recommendation - I will look this up.

For those that are interested - the exact wording of the sentence I read was:

'Instead of focusing on the technical terms of the modes, just be aware that they are nothing more than chord tones with the notes from the key placed between them.'

Hi

I'm studying from the Hal Leonard book 'beginning jazz guitar'.

Chapter 2 is all about triad inversions - I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to approach practice for this.

It says I should practice all inversions, (R, i, ii), all four types of triad (M, m, d, A), all keys (12), and all string sets (there are four of them).

This makes 576 combinations -

Anyone have any ideas of how to approach this practice-wise?


You can make music out of these exercises. You can start imrovising on a ii-V-I in the key of C. Try to play Dmin triad for the ii chord, G triad for the V chord and C triad for the I chord. While moving across the fingerboard, trying to find new shapes, you can go through all the inversions of the triads.
I hope that this is something that you can try out. From my own experience, it always helped me to learn new concepts through playing music.
If you want you can check out my lessons.
