Asked by Unknown on 2000-04-26
give me some examples, i mean are some songs that use triads,or how would you use them thanks
Answer posted by stevie ray 333 on 2000-06-09
u can use them anywhere. In blues if u use a major triad to solo over dominant 7th chords ( 1,3,5,b7) Your major triad (1,3,5) is the base for dominant 7th chords just add the b7th in the key of "C" it's "A#" . Just go backwards 1 whole step (2 frets 8 to 6 ) to get the b7th. There are cool inversions of the major triads. An inversion is when u play the 1,3,5 switched around. 3,1,5 or 5,3,1,or 3,5,1 etc. same sound just "inverted". Play the 1, 2, 3 high strings on your guitar , thats an inversion 1(E), 5(B),3(G) Now if you flat the 3rd move it down one fret or one 1/2 step it makes it minor. The 3rd is what makes any chord major or minor, dominant . The triad is like the basic three colors of chords red, blue,and yellow. When you add more notes u get more colors b7, 6th, 9th, #9th, 11th, 13th, (the 13th is really a 6th --just subtract 7 from the high numbers above 8 ((octave of the root)) and *voila* you have the lower octave of the note. 13 - 7 = 6 So a 13th chord has to have an octave of 6th c,d,e,f,g,a,b,c, in the key of C it's an "A" You can play triads in a triplet groove 1 and a 2 and a 3 and 4 and a etc. I could go on and on but I don't know if I "correctly" answered your question because you can play them where ever you want to play them I sorta told u how u can use 'em
