Event Details

Hosted by John


When learning how to play guitar, many of us begin by exploring major and minor triads, often in the open position. As we advance, we might take these three-note chords up the neck and learn different inversions. But people tend to stop at closed-position triads, and in doing so are missing out on the beautiful sounds of the open voiced triad (sometimes called spread voiced triad).

While it is important to learn and be able to apply closed-position triads and their inversions to different musical situations, we can really broaden our harmonic landscape when we begin to dig into open voiced triads and their various fingerings and musical applications. Open voiced triads are also invaluable as tools for making modern sounding melody lines which will spice up your lead playing.

In this workshop, John will show you how to “open” or “spread” the notes of a triad, and how to practice these shapes around different string sets and keys on the fretboard. The workshop will cover major, minor, diminished and augmented triads.

This online workshop is interactive and will be done via ZOOM. You will need a computer with a webcam and mic.
