EXAMPLES TRIAD PAIRS
example 1 at the end of the previous lesson, devoted to triad pairs G and a, I recommended that you experiment with an alternative pair: em to F#m (a triad pair comprises two triads from the same scale but not sharing any common notes). Here, as an example, we’re arranging various inversions of em and F#m into three-string shapes (all on the fourth, third and second strings) that are shifted along the length of the neck. This example stems from CaGed shape #1. Try to create similar ideas from each one of the other CaGed shapes too.
example 2 More triad pairs here. We’re back to a and G; however, unlike many previous examples in this series, this one (which starts from shape #2) illustrates how it is possible to mix different sized triad shapes. Bars 5 and 6 feature a combination of six and three-string shapes integrated into a line that contains a variety of approaches and techniques.
