Triad Chords #3of3 (Guitar Lesson CH-008) How to play

  • 0:09 - 0:12
    Now you've got three different ways
    of playing that sequence
  • 0:12 - 0:14
    You can either use shape one and go:
  • 0:14 - 0:18
    . . .
  • 0:18 - 0:20
    Shape two and go:
  • 0:20 - 0:24
    . . .
  • 0:24 - 0:26
    or shape three and go:
  • 0:26 - 0:30
    . . .
  • 0:30 - 0:33
    Now, all of those are cool. They all sound nice.
  • 0:33 - 0:35
    And by experimenting a little bit,
  • 0:35 - 0:39
    I'm sure you'll find some really cool ways
    of using those chords.
  • 0:39 - 0:41
    But. There is an easy way to do it.
  • 0:41 - 0:43
    Now, of course, you don't have to move.
  • 0:43 - 0:45
    Those of you who are a little bit observant
  • 0:45 - 0:47
    might have noticed that if we've got our G chord
  • 0:47 - 0:49
    down here at the third fret,
  • 0:49 - 0:50
    . . .
  • 0:50 - 0:52
    we also had a C chord around that as well:
  • 0:52 - 0:54
    . . .
  • 0:54 - 0:56
    I'm going to get a little close up with this in a sec,
  • 0:56 - 0:57
    just so you can make sure you get this right.
  • 0:57 - 0:59
    But I'll explain it in a wide first.
  • 0:59 - 1:00
    So we had G
  • 1:00 - 1:02
    . . .
  • 1:02 - 1:04
    then we could go to C down here
  • 1:04 - 1:05
    . . .
  • 1:05 - 1:06
    and then back to G
  • 1:06 - 1:08
    . . .
  • 1:08 - 1:09
    and our D chord was just behind
  • 1:09 - 1:10
    . . .
  • 1:10 - 1:13
    So instead of having to jump all around the guitar neck,
  • 1:13 - 1:18
    suddenly you can find all of your chords in one shot,
    in kind of one area of the guitar.
  • 1:18 - 1:20
    So that was the first area:
  • 1:20 - 1:22
    . . .
  • 1:22 - 1:23
    Now, there's a second area too.
  • 1:23 - 1:26
    If we had the G chord using the second shape:
  • 1:26 - 1:28
    . . .
  • 1:28 - 1:31
    then we have C chord using the first shape, just nearby:
  • 1:31 - 1:32
    . . .
  • 1:32 - 1:33
    back to G chord:
  • 1:33 - 1:34
    . . .
  • 1:34 - 1:36
    and D chord we can just go back a little bit.
  • 1:36 - 1:37
    . . .
  • 1:37 - 1:40
    You can hear they're all kind of next to each other.
    I had a G
  • 1:40 - 1:41
    . . .
  • 1:41 - 1:42
    C
  • 1:42 - 1:43
    . . .
  • 1:43 - 1:45
    back to G and down to D
  • 1:45 - 1:48
    . . .
  • 1:48 - 1:50
    And of course there's a third one,
    because we've got three shapes.
  • 1:50 - 1:53
    there's three different kind of areas that you can play it in.
  • 1:53 - 1:55
    First one being up around at the twelfth fret,
  • 1:55 - 1:56
    . . .
  • 1:56 - 1:57
    for the G chord.
  • 1:57 - 1:59
    . . .
  • 1:59 - 2:00
    Staying around the twelfth fret for the C chord
  • 2:00 - 2:02
    . . .
  • 2:02 - 2:03
    going back to G
  • 2:03 - 2:04
    . . .
  • 2:04 - 2:06
    and using D using shape one.
  • 2:06 - 2:07
    It's a really cool idea.
  • 2:07 - 2:10
    Once you get the idea of how these little things
    connect with each other,
  • 2:10 - 2:12
    you don't have to shift around the neck so much.
  • 2:12 - 2:14
    You can choose to shift around if you want.
  • 2:14 - 2:18
    Because sometimes it sounds better to do
    G down here and D right up here,
  • 2:18 - 2:21
    but sometimes you don't want
    to have to shift that far on the guitar
  • 2:21 - 2:23
    and be looking and staring at the guitar neck.
  • 2:23 - 2:25
    Especially if there's some nice girls around
    that you want to look at,
  • 2:25 - 2:27
    you don't want to have to be looking at your guitar
    to shift about.
  • 2:27 - 2:30
    You might want to just shift back to D
    so you don't have to look.
  • 2:30 - 2:33
    So let's go to a close up now and I'll show you
    the ways of playing
  • 2:33 - 2:38
    the G-C-G-D chord sequence,
    just using one area at a time.
  • 2:40 - 2:42
    Here we are for our first G shape
  • 2:42 - 2:44
    and this is down the third fret, there's the note G.
  • 2:44 - 2:46
    . . .
  • 2:46 - 2:49
    Now, rather than sliding up the neck,
    we've got a C chord
  • 2:49 - 2:50
    . . .
  • 2:50 - 2:54
    here, using the third shape. There's the root note C.
  • 2:54 - 2:56
    . . .
  • 2:56 - 2:57
    Then we'd go back to G:
  • 2:57 - 2:59
    . . .
  • 2:59 - 3:02
    And then if we look nearby, there's the note D,
  • 3:02 - 3:04
    . . .
  • 3:04 - 3:05
    and there's our little D chord.
  • 3:05 - 3:09
    So in shapes using the first area, we could have G,
  • 3:09 - 3:10
    . . .
  • 3:10 - 3:11
    C
  • 3:11 - 3:13
    . . .
  • 3:13 - 3:14
    G
  • 3:14 - 3:15
    . . .
  • 3:15 - 3:16
    D
  • 3:16 - 3:17
    . . .
  • 3:17 - 3:20
    You can see the way that they all just link together.
    that's obviously
  • 3:20 - 3:22
    . . .
  • 3:22 - 3:23
    a lot easier,
  • 3:23 - 3:28
    . . .
  • 3:28 - 3:30
    a lot easier than shifting up and down the neck.
  • 3:30 - 3:32
    OK, let's have a look at the second area.
  • 3:33 - 3:36
    OK, here we are for the second way
    of playing through our little sequence.
  • 3:36 - 3:39
    The first one we used is the one
    that looks like a D shape.
  • 3:39 - 3:41
    There's the root note there, G.
  • 3:41 - 3:43
    . . .
  • 3:43 - 3:44
    Now we want a C chord.
  • 3:44 - 3:48
    There's a note C, on the thinnest string,
    so we do shape one:
  • 3:48 - 3:49
    . . .
  • 3:49 - 3:51
    Then we go back to our G chord
  • 3:51 - 3:52
    . . .
  • 3:52 - 3:57
    and then we're looking for a D shape,
    a D chord, rather. There's our note D:
  • 3:57 - 3:58
    . . .
  • 3:58 - 4:02
    So, we're using kind of the third shape there.
    So we'd be using here:
  • 4:02 - 4:03
    Second shape
  • 4:03 - 4:04
    . . .
  • 4:04 - 4:06
    To C using the first shape
  • 4:06 - 4:07
    . . .
  • 4:07 - 4:08
    Back to G,
  • 4:08 - 4:09
    . . .
  • 4:09 - 4:12
    and then using our third shape there for the chord D,
  • 4:12 - 4:14
    because there's our root note: D.
  • 4:14 - 4:16
    . . .
  • 4:16 - 4:17
    Nice one.
  • 4:17 - 4:27
    . . .
  • 4:27 - 4:30
    OK, here we go for the third one.
    So this is a G chord again:
  • 4:30 - 4:31
    . . .
  • 4:31 - 4:35
    Here, this is the third finger on the note G, the root note.
  • 4:35 - 4:38
    At the 12th fret, of course, because you can see
    the double dots there.
  • 4:38 - 4:39
    . . .
  • 4:39 - 4:42
    There's G. Now, C chord nearby:
  • 4:42 - 4:43
    . . .
  • 4:43 - 4:45
    Would be done like this, using
  • 4:45 - 4:48
    there's the root note there, 2nd string, 13th fret.
  • 4:48 - 4:49
    . . .
  • 4:49 - 4:50
    Back to G:
  • 4:50 - 4:52
    . . .
  • 4:52 - 4:53
    And then D.
  • 4:53 - 4:54
    . . .
  • 4:54 - 4:56
    There's the note D, there's shape one.
  • 4:56 - 4:56
    . . .
  • 4:56 - 4:59
    Because shape one has the root note
    on the thinnest string.
  • 4:59 - 4:59
    . . .
  • 4:59 - 5:00
    So G:
  • 5:00 - 5:02
    . . .
  • 5:02 - 5:03
    Now, sometimes I finger
  • 5:03 - 5:05
    . . .
  • 5:05 - 5:07
    using different fingers this time to make my D chord
  • 5:07 - 5:10
    Instead of that, you could use this.
    It doesn't really matter.
  • 5:10 - 5:12
    You could even play that first shape like this
  • 5:12 - 5:13
    . . .
  • 5:13 - 5:15
    Whatever works to you.
    And then:
  • 5:15 - 5:16
    . . .
  • 5:16 - 5:18
    There's your D chord.
    So, G:
  • 5:18 - 5:20
    . . .
  • 5:20 - 5:21
    C
  • 5:21 - 5:22
    . . .
  • 5:22 - 5:23
    Back to G
  • 5:23 - 5:24
    . . .
  • 5:24 - 5:25
    D
  • 5:25 - 5:28
    . . .
  • 5:30 - 5:34
    OK, what we've covered in this lesson
    is quite a lot of information
  • 5:34 - 5:38
    It's really important that you get to grips with this,
    these kind of shapes first.
  • 5:38 - 5:41
    Being able to find and locate the root note,
  • 5:41 - 5:45
    and then be able to put the appropriate shape
    around the root note.
  • 5:45 - 5:47
    The root note is the key here.
  • 5:47 - 5:49
    If you don't know where the notes are on the guitar neck
  • 5:49 - 5:51
    and you don't know where the root notes are,
  • 5:51 - 5:53
    using this technique is going to be really difficult.
  • 5:53 - 5:56
    Kind of possible, I suppose, if you just use your ear,
    but it's really, really hard.
  • 5:56 - 6:01
    So, my big advice would be making sure
    that you get to know the notes on the fingerboard,
  • 6:01 - 6:05
    which is discussed on the website and also
    discussed in my practical music theory book,
  • 6:05 - 6:10
    which might be worth a quick look if you are interested
    in understanding what you're doing.
  • 6:12 - 6:13
    That's the fundamental thing.
  • 6:13 - 6:16
    The next thing is just to make sure
    that you are aware of the shapes
  • 6:16 - 6:19
    and which note in the shape is the root note.
  • 6:19 - 6:21
    For that you can go and check out the website
  • 6:21 - 6:25
    where I'll have little diagrams of those three shapes.
  • 6:25 - 6:28
    Now, so far we've only looked at G, C and D.
  • 6:28 - 6:31
    But it's really important that you're able to find
    any chord that you'd like,
  • 6:31 - 6:34
    and that, again, just relies on the root notes.
  • 6:34 - 6:37
    So, if you want to play an A chord,
    an A triad, then you know,
  • 6:37 - 6:39
    "Well, there's an A on the thinnest string."
  • 6:39 - 6:44
    so, if I'd use the shape with
    the thinnest string having the root note,
  • 6:44 - 6:49
    I'd use the first shape, which is that little one,
    with that little barre with the first finger.
  • 6:49 - 6:51
    So that would be an A chord up here at the 5th fret.
  • 6:51 - 6:52
    . . .
  • 6:52 - 6:55
    That same shape at the 9th fret would be a C# chord.
  • 6:55 - 6:56
    . . .
  • 6:56 - 6:57
    They all just move around,
  • 6:57 - 7:01
    so it's getting that understanding where the root is
    and finding the shape,
  • 7:01 - 7:03
    is really, really key important.
  • 7:03 - 7:07
    Now, those of you -- It's a little challenge part for you.
  • 7:07 - 7:11
    Now, if you want to learn the minor triads,
  • 7:11 - 7:15
    so the same three shapes that I've just shown you,
    but the minor ones.
  • 7:15 - 7:17
    Those of you who have done a little bit of music theory,
  • 7:17 - 7:20
    will know that the only difference between
    a major chord and a minor chord
  • 7:20 - 7:24
    is that the minor chord has a flattened third.
  • 7:24 - 7:27
    Now, in this case, that note would be B,
  • 7:27 - 7:31
    because a G major chord was G, B, D.
  • 7:31 - 7:36
    So, Gm chord is going to have the notes G, Bb and D.
  • 7:36 - 7:41
    So, your little task now is to go and figure out,
    from those three shapes,
  • 7:41 - 7:45
    which one's the root note, which one's the third,
    i.e. the note B,
  • 7:45 - 7:48
    and which one's the fifth, which is the note D.
  • 7:48 - 7:54
    Once you've done that, if you lower the degree
    that is the third by one semitone
  • 7:54 - 7:58
    you get your three minor type triads,
    which I'm going to show you from wide shots,
  • 7:58 - 8:00
    so you can't cheat too much.
  • 8:00 - 8:01
    . . .
  • 8:01 - 8:02
    You'd have here Gm
  • 8:02 - 8:03
    . . .
  • 8:03 - 8:04
    You'd have the Gm here
  • 8:04 - 8:05
    . . .
  • 8:05 - 8:09
    And you'd have a Gm right at the 12th fret as well.
  • 8:09 - 8:11
    So, they are really similar looking, you know,
  • 8:11 - 8:17
    It's only one note moved one fret back
    between the major shapes and the minor types.
  • 8:17 - 8:18
    Minor shapes.
  • 8:18 - 8:21
    So, it's really important now for you
    to do a little bit of homework,
  • 8:21 - 8:25
    and figure out what the notes are in each of those triad shapes that I've shown you.
  • 8:25 - 8:28
    work out which note is the note B, flatten it,
  • 8:28 - 8:30
    and then you've got all your minor types.
  • 8:30 - 8:33
    I want to leave discussing minor triads
    and the other ones for a little while
  • 8:33 - 8:38
    to make sure that you actually work it out,
    because if you if you learn this stuff yourself,
  • 8:38 - 8:42
    you're going to find it a lot more beneficial
    than if just I spoon feed it to you.
  • 8:43 - 8:45
    Hopefully, that's more than your brain,
  • 8:45 - 8:48
    You know, hopefully your brain is getting a bit sore now
    from all of this information.
  • 8:48 - 8:52
    The big deal now is go and use it and to understand it.
  • 8:52 - 8:53
    So figuring out what the notes are
  • 8:53 - 8:56
    and get cracking trying to put it
    into this chord sequence we're doing.
  • 8:56 - 9:00
    Jam with it as much as you can, and then try
    just picking another song, I don't know:
  • 9:00 - 9:02
    "Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd.
  • 9:02 - 9:05
    it's got, you know, pretty basic kind of chord structure.
  • 9:05 - 9:09
    So why not have a go at seeing if you can work out
    all your triad shapes for that song.
  • 9:09 - 9:12
    Get your mate to play the rhythm guitar
    and use the triads over the top.
  • 9:12 - 9:14
    Or, just play the record.
  • 9:14 - 9:17
    You know, put the CD on and then try
    and play along with it
  • 9:17 - 9:19
    using your new found triad skills.
  • 9:19 - 9:21
    It really sounds great as a second guitar part.
  • 9:21 - 9:27
    Really cool for jamming and really,
    really useful kind of mind expanding lesson
  • 9:27 - 9:31
    if you go through and work out where the notes are
    and you understand the concept.
  • 9:31 - 9:34
    If you don't subscribe, -- please hit that --
    please go and check out the web site,
  • 9:34 - 9:40
    lots of information there on this and a whole lot more
    as you probably know already.
  • 9:40 - 9:43
    Worth a look if you haven't gone and checked it out already.
  • 9:43 - 9:46
    See you again for some more lessons,
    sometime in the near future.
  • 9:46 - 9:49
    Take care of yourselves and I'll see you soon.
