GuitarControl.com released a new video guitar lesson from master instructor Jon MacLennan. In this second part guitar lesson, now available on YouTube.com, Jon MacLennan teaches how to play triads in the key of A minor on the lower strings.

(PRWEB) June 30, 2014

A Triad is a three note chord. A Major Triad consists of the Root Note, the note that a chord derives its name from, the Third (Major Third) and Fifth (Perfect Fifth) notes of the Major Scale. A Minor Triad consists of Root Note, Flat Third (Minor Third), and Fifth (Perfect Fifth). When a Triad is composed in Root Position the notes are arranged in the order of 1-3-5 for Major and 1-flat 3-5 for Minor. Triads can be inverted so that the Root Note is not the lowest note. The First Inversion is where the Root Note is moved to the highest pitch making the order 3-5-1 for a Major Triad and flat 3-5-1 for a Minor Triad. The Second Inversion is where the Root Note and Third Note are both moved about the Fifth making the order 5-1-3 for a Major Triad and 5-1-flat 3 for a Minor Triad. MacLennan demonstrates triad voicings in three positions in the key of A minor as follows; in root position, 5th fret of the 6th string with 4th finger, 3rd fret of the 5th string with 2nd finger and 2nd fret of the 4th string with first finger. First inversion, 8th fret of the 6th string with 2nd finger, 7th fret of the 5th and 4th strings with first finger. Second inversion, 12th fret of the 6th string with 2nd finger, 12 fret of the 5th string with 3rd finger and 10th fret of the 4th string with first finger, all three of these shapes can be easily transposed to other keys. Guitar TABs are available for this easy guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
