We learned how a chord is built from the 1st, 3rd and 5th notes of a scale. We've learned that this concept is called Triadic Harmony or Tertiary Harmony. We've explored and learned to play basic triad inversion chord voicing shapes in multiple fretboard locations.
We learned two important concepts about triad chords and their inversion voicings.
The first is that by using inversions we can make our chords, and therefore our music, much more interesting; more rich, complex and beautiful. We can start to look at using chords not simply as static shapes, but as three simultaneous voices that each have their own unique qualities in the overall fabric of the music.
The second is that these different voicings are very powerful tools once we understand and apply them because they enable us view and use the entire fretboard. We can play any given chord in any location or register (low or high pitch) by isolating the 1st, 3rd and 5th anywhere on the fretboard we can find them.
Happy inversion playing!
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
