Ex­am­ples Stacked Tri­ads

Guitar Techniques - - LESSON -

ex­am­ple 8 Here, we’re us­ing an edited form of the pre­vi­ous stacked con­fig­u­ra­tions. By re­mov­ing the high­est note on the third string for each triad on the fourth and third string-pair, we end up with a se­ries of shapes that tra­verse all six strings com­pris­ing two dif­fer­ent-sized tri­ads and fit beau­ti­fully into a 16th-note count. This par­tic­u­lar ex­am­ple starts in CaGed shape #1 and trav­els up through the var­i­ous po­si­tions to #1 an oc­tave higher.

ex­am­ple 9 Fi­nally, we show that you don’t need to tra­verse all six strings in each po­si­tion in or­der to cre­ate an ef­fec­tive mu­si­cal idea us­ing stacked tri­ads. Here, we’re us­ing two stacked tri­ads in each po­si­tion only. This ex­am­ple starts in CaGed shape #1 and moves up through #2 to #3 be­fore fin­ish­ing on a re­peated rhyth­mic mo­tif that spans both shapes #2 and 3. I do hope you have en­joyed this se­ries and have be­gun to use tri­ads mu­si­cally in your own play­ing.
