Minor Triads & Inversions

Lesson Info

We are going to shift our attention to the concept of minor chords and their inversions. Again, a triad is a chord using 3 notes to create one overall sound. Now matter what the shape, these chords all include the same notes and will create the same quality of sound. Shifting from major to minor, the only difference between minor triads and the major triads we learned in Chapter 1 is the lowering of one note, a half step (or one fret down the neck of the guitar.) We will again use triads you are already playing in the chords D minor, A minor, and E minor, also using the string grouping concept. Following each demonstration will be more examples of triads used in a rock guitar style.
