Using Guitar Triads for Rhythm - Riff Ninja

Using Guitar Triads for Rhythm

Here’s another lesson in our series of lessons featuring both Colin Daniel and Jonathan Boettcher, this one showing how to use guitar triads to add a very cool complementary part to a song.

If you’re playing with a friend, please don’t both play exactly the same thing!

The point with this mini-series is to try to give you a few ideas to help you think outside of the box a little bit. You’ll find that playing something different than your friend actually sounds much cooler than playing the same thing, and once you get started on this, you might find it kind of addictive trying to find new sounds where both guitars complement each other!

Anyways, in this lesson we’ll take a look specifically at how you can use three note guitar triads to produce a cool sound.

Johnathan is my beginner’s hero. Scale Patterns and his 1,4,5 are fantastic.
