Introduction & Overview

This extensive video course explores the four triad types (Augmented, Major, Minor, & Diminished) on the four adjacent string sets (321, 432, 543, 654), and also includes voice-leading exercises through the Cycle of Fourths in Major, Melodic Minor, & Harmonic Minor. 

Guided improvisations using two-string permutations, & patterns that examine the entire fret-board, are also included.

Though this course includes music theory, its primary focus is on the practicalities of recognizing, memorizing, & applying triadic harmony, in all keys & positions, on the guitar.

Ear-training & improvisation are strongly emphasized.


Triads are one of the most productive investments of your practice time, regardless of style, genre, or level.

Expanding into harmonized scales & chord cycles will provide a strong foundation for mastery of the harmonic progressions found in any genre.

Your reading, aural skills, and technique will continually improve if you integrate triad inversions & harmonized scales through chord cycles into your daily practice; the course closes with a detailed six-week practice plan to show you how.
