Examples Stacked Triads
example 3 This starts with≤ the parental triad, followed by an em and d #before triad pair finishing on a melody based around a C#dim triad. example 4 This is the first of a series of examples based around stacked triads. It starts in shape #2 and illustrates how triads can be stacked on top cas~e~,o~n of each other in visual terms (in this the sixth and fifth; fourth and third; second and first strings). The resultant patterns, which span all six strings in each position are reminiscent of those used by Richie Kotzen. example 5 Here, we’re using extended technique (left and right-hand
(sixteen notes tapping) to crank the tempo up to sextuplets per click). The root note of each triad stems from each new string. Geographically, this example starts in #3 and then occupies an area shared by shapes #4 and #3 before finishing in shape #2.
