ExamplE1 Triad inversions in classic rock
Major triads. The opening bar shows you the three possible triad inversions of D major: R-3-5 = root inversion; 3-5-R = first inversion; 5-R-3 = second inversion. This exercise features a classic rock triad playing over a D pedal typical of Pete Townshend. Use a saturated tone and some trailing echo to complete the picture.
