When you play a full barre-chord there are actually many more notes than you really need. This is because the most basic version of any major or minor chord only has 3 notes and the bass player is already playing at least one of those. We don't have to get super theoretical about this right now, but in this tutorial we'll look at how to strip down your full barre-chords to smaller versions of each chord; known as "triads" and how you can use those in your electric country rhythm playing.
