Triad Chords #2of3 (Guitar Lesson CH-008) How to play

  • 0:09 - 0:10
    So.
  • 0:10 - 0:11
    If we take our sequence
  • 0:11 - 0:13
    G, C, G, D
  • 0:13 - 0:16
    what we need to learn now is how to move
    our triad shape around.
  • 0:16 - 0:19
    So, the very first one that we looked at,
  • 0:19 - 0:20
    the very first shape,
  • 0:20 - 0:21
    . . .
  • 0:21 - 0:23
    the one down on the 3rd fret,
  • 0:23 - 0:24
    we already talked about that the root note
  • 0:24 - 0:27
    was the note on the thinnest string
  • 0:27 - 0:29
    at the 3rd fret.
  • 0:29 - 0:31
    So, that chord becomes G
  • 0:31 - 0:34
    because the note at the third fret on the thinnest string is the note G.
  • 0:34 - 0:36
    So, that becomes G chord
  • 0:36 - 0:39
    or G Major, or G Major triad,
    you can call it what you like,
  • 0:39 - 0:41
    or just G is OK as well.
  • 0:42 - 0:43
    So, that's G, now.
  • 0:43 - 0:47
    Let's say that we want to use that same shape
    and make it a C chord.
  • 0:47 - 0:48
    Now, the thing that you...
  • 0:48 - 0:50
    The importance of knowing
    where your root note is that
  • 0:50 - 0:53
    all you have to do is move that
    root note to the note C
  • 0:53 - 0:56
    and you've got yourself a C chord. So,
  • 0:56 - 0:58
    the root note was on the
    thinnest string at the third fret,
  • 0:58 - 1:00
    that was the note G.
  • 1:00 - 1:02
    Now, hopefully most of you
    are starting to get to know
  • 1:02 - 1:04
    the names of the notes on the guitar.
  • 1:04 - 1:05
    It's really, really important.
    If you're not,
  • 1:05 - 1:07
    you definitely want to go
    to check out the web site
  • 1:07 - 1:09
    and suss out some ways to do that.
  • 1:09 - 1:11
    The note C
  • 1:11 - 1:13
    is found at the 8th fret
  • 1:13 - 1:14
    on the thinnest string.
  • 1:14 - 1:16
    So now we're just going to use that same
  • 1:16 - 1:18
    -- I'm kind of going to call it shape one --
  • 1:18 - 1:20
    the same shape that we started off with in G
  • 1:20 - 1:21
    down at the 3rd fret.
  • 1:21 - 1:22
    . . .
  • 1:22 - 1:24
    We now move it up to the 8th fret
  • 1:24 - 1:25
    . . .
  • 1:25 - 1:27
    And we've got our C chord.
  • 1:28 - 1:29
    So, G down at the 3rd fret:
  • 1:29 - 1:31
    . . .
  • 1:31 - 1:32
    8th fret:
  • 1:32 - 1:33
    . . .
  • 1:33 - 1:34
    C chord.
  • 1:34 - 1:36
    Now, we said our progression
    was going to back to G,
  • 1:36 - 1:38
    so back all the way to the 3rd fret:
  • 1:38 - 1:39
    . . .
  • 1:39 - 1:41
    And now we want a D chord.
  • 1:41 - 1:43
    Now, hopefully most of you know that
  • 1:43 - 1:44
    D is one tone higher than C.
  • 1:44 - 1:46
    So, if C was at the 8th fret,
  • 1:46 - 1:48
    D must be at the 10th fret.
  • 1:48 - 1:49
    . . .
  • 1:49 - 1:52
    We're just going to strum the chord once,
  • 1:52 - 1:53
    just so you can hear what is going on.
  • 1:53 - 1:54
    So, we'd be going G:
  • 1:54 - 1:55
    . . .
  • 1:55 - 1:57
    2, 3, up to C:
  • 1:57 - 1:59
    C (plays)
  • 1:59 - 2:00
    2, 3, 4
  • 2:00 - 2:02
    back to G (plays)
  • 2:02 - 2:04
    2, 3, and up to D
  • 2:04 - 2:05
    . . .
  • 2:05 - 2:08
    2, 3, 4.
  • 2:08 - 2:09
    G (plays)
  • 2:09 - 2:10
    2, 3, 4
  • 2:10 - 2:12
    Up to C (plays)
  • 2:12 - 2:14
    2, 3, 4
  • 2:14 - 2:15
    Back to G (plays)
  • 2:15 - 2:17
    2, 3, 4
  • 2:17 - 2:18
    And up to D (plays)
  • 2:18 - 2:21
    2, 3, 4.
  • 2:21 - 2:23
    Now, what you want to try
    and have it a go at now is
  • 2:23 - 2:25
    getting your mate or, you know,
  • 2:25 - 2:27
    your buddy or, if you've got a
    recording device, record yourslef
  • 2:27 - 2:29
    just playing G (plays).
  • 2:29 - 2:31
    In fact, I'll play rhythm guitar now.
  • 2:31 - 2:34
    I'm changing the lesson all the way through this time!
    This is quite funny.
  • 2:34 - 2:36
    So, I'm going to play now the sequence
  • 2:36 - 2:38
    G, C, G and D
  • 2:38 - 2:40
    And what I want you to try and do is
  • 2:40 - 2:41
    move your chord and go:
  • 2:41 - 2:44
    G from there, up to the C (plays),
  • 2:44 - 2:45
    back to the G (plays)
  • 2:45 - 2:46
    and up to the D (plays).
  • 2:46 - 2:47
    So here we go:
  • 2:47 - 2:47
    3
  • 2:47 - 2:48
    4
  • 2:48 - 2:49
    G
  • 2:49 - 2:50
    . . .
  • 2:50 - 2:51
    To C.
  • 2:51 - 2:53
    . . .
  • 2:53 - 2:54
    Back to G.
  • 2:54 - 2:55
    . . .
  • 2:55 - 2:56
    And up to D.
  • 2:56 - 2:57
    . . .
  • 2:57 - 3:00
    Now, I'll do it again, so you should be
    in third fret now.
  • 3:00 - 3:01
    . . .
  • 3:01 - 3:02
    and then you're going to move up
    to the 8th fret.
  • 3:02 - 3:03
    . . .
  • 3:03 - 3:05
    Back to the 3rd fret.
  • 3:05 - 3:06
    . . .
  • 3:06 - 3:07
    And then up to the 10th fret.
  • 3:07 - 3:10
    . . .
  • 3:10 - 3:12
    And you finish on the G.
  • 3:12 - 3:14
    Now, you can either just strum this chord,
  • 3:14 - 3:15
    just like here (plays):
  • 3:15 - 3:17
    2, 3, 4
  • 3:17 - 3:17
    And then up to C (plays).
  • 3:17 - 3:19
    Or you can make a pattern,
  • 3:19 - 3:20
    You could go:
  • 3:20 - 3:21
    . . .
  • 3:21 - 3:22
    And then to C:
  • 3:22 - 3:23
    . . .
  • 3:23 - 3:24
    4
  • 3:24 - 3:25
    1 and, 2 and, 3
  • 3:25 - 3:26
    4
  • 3:26 - 3:28
    1 and, 2 and, 3
  • 3:28 - 3:28
    4
  • 3:28 - 3:29
    You can do it anyway you want.
  • 3:29 - 3:30
    You could go:
  • 3:30 - 3:35
    . . .
  • 3:35 - 3:37
    It doesn't really matter.
  • 3:37 - 3:39
    You can kind of play about with the rhythm
    a little bit yourself.
  • 3:39 - 3:41
    In fact, that's one of the things that will
    keep it interesting
  • 3:41 - 3:42
    if you're jamming with your buddy
  • 3:42 - 3:44
    and he's playing the chords
  • 3:44 - 3:46
    and you get to play about with the triads,
  • 3:46 - 3:47
    it kind of makes it fun.
  • 3:47 - 3:50
    You'll find that the sound that I've got
    has a little bit of delay on it
  • 3:50 - 3:52
    and I think a little bit of chorus as well.
  • 3:52 - 3:55
    And that kind of sound is nice one:
  • 3:55 - 3:56
    a clean guitar sound playing triads,
  • 3:56 - 3:59
    while an acoustic guitar plays the chords:
  • 3:59 - 4:01
    Bellissimo!
  • 4:01 - 4:02
    Beautiful, beautiful sound.
  • 4:02 - 4:06
    So, that's something you want to have
    a little bit of play about with.
  • 4:06 - 4:07
    Just experiment with the
    rhythm that you use.
  • 4:07 - 4:09
    Now, that's just using shape one,
  • 4:09 - 4:11
    but we've got three shapes
    that we can deal with.
  • 4:11 - 4:12
    So, the second shape
  • 4:12 - 4:15
    that we looked at was the one...
    the G chord
  • 4:15 - 4:17
    based around the 7th fret.
  • 4:17 - 4:19
    . . .
  • 4:19 - 4:23
    Now, in that shape, the root note was
    on the second string.
  • 4:23 - 4:24
    . . .
  • 4:24 - 4:28
    That's the note G, and the reason
    that this is a G chord,
  • 4:28 - 4:29
    or a G triad,
  • 4:29 - 4:32
    is because third finger in this case
    is on the root note,
  • 4:32 - 4:35
    which is the note G at the 8th fret
    of the 2nd string.
  • 4:35 - 4:38
    Now, we are going to stick with our
    same little chord sequence
  • 4:38 - 4:41
    G, C, G, D.
  • 4:41 - 4:43
    So, if we want to move this one
  • 4:43 - 4:44
    to a C chord
  • 4:44 - 4:47
    we have to put the note on the 2nd string
  • 4:47 - 4:49
    onto the note C.
  • 4:49 - 4:51
    So, those of you who now, get to it now.
  • 4:51 - 4:52
    Those of you who don't
  • 4:52 - 4:55
    we're going to now move that third finger
  • 4:55 - 4:57
    up to the 13th fret
  • 4:57 - 4:59
    of the 2nd string.
  • 4:59 - 5:00
    . . .
  • 5:00 - 5:02
    That would now be a C chord.
  • 5:02 - 5:04
    So, your hand is now up to the 12th fret.
  • 5:04 - 5:05
    . . .
  • 5:05 - 5:08
    Now we go back to G,
    which is based around the 7th fret.
  • 5:08 - 5:09
    . . .
  • 5:09 - 5:11
    With the root note on 8th fret, of course.
  • 5:11 - 5:12
    Not forgetting where the root note is.
  • 5:12 - 5:15
    Knowing the root note is the most important thing about this exercise.
  • 5:15 - 5:16
    . . .
  • 5:16 - 5:18
    And then, if we want to go to a D chord,
  • 5:18 - 5:20
    Well, we've got our little D chord (plays)
  • 5:20 - 5:21
    Hey hey!
  • 5:21 - 5:22
    You already know...
  • 5:22 - 5:23
    You probably already familiar with D chord,
  • 5:23 - 5:25
    at least you should be, if you're now
    doing this lesson on triads.
  • 5:25 - 5:26
    So.
  • 5:26 - 5:28
    And that one would be,
    of course, the root note
  • 5:28 - 5:30
    on the 3rd fret of the 2nd string.
  • 5:30 - 5:31
    And...
  • 5:31 - 5:34
    I mean, it wouldn't hurt if you played
    the open D string as well,
  • 5:34 - 5:36
    like a regular D chord, but
  • 5:36 - 5:38
    for this exercise I'd recommend that you don't.
  • 5:38 - 5:40
    Just play the three strings
    that your fingers are on.
  • 5:40 - 5:41
    So, in this one,
  • 5:41 - 5:44
    you use the same sequence as before,
  • 5:44 - 5:46
    we're going to have G
  • 5:46 - 5:47
    . . .
  • 5:47 - 5:48
    2, 3
  • 5:48 - 5:49
    Up to C.
  • 5:49 - 5:51
    (plays) 1, 2, 3
  • 5:51 - 5:52
    Back to G.
  • 5:52 - 5:55
    (plays) 2, 3
  • 5:55 - 5:56
    And then all the way down to D.
  • 5:56 - 5:58
    (plays) 2, 3 and
  • 5:58 - 5:59
    Through that again:
  • 5:59 - 6:02
    (plays) G, 2, 3.
  • 6:02 - 6:03
    All the way up to C, 12th fret,
  • 6:03 - 6:05
    (plays) 2, 3
  • 6:05 - 6:07
    and then back to the 7th fret,
  • 6:07 - 6:08
    . . .
  • 6:08 - 6:09
    for the G chord,
  • 6:09 - 6:10
    and then down to the 2nd fret for D.
  • 6:10 - 6:11
    . . .
  • 6:11 - 6:14
    And then through this.
  • 6:14 - 6:15
    And so on.
  • 6:15 - 6:17
    And again, you could change
    just the rhythm of it.
  • 6:17 - 6:18
    You don't have to
    just do this one strum,
  • 6:18 - 6:21
    if you want to change the rhythm
    or pick out the notes individually
  • 6:21 - 6:22
    that will sound cool.
  • 6:22 - 6:24
    Now, I'm going to play
    the chords again for you,
  • 6:24 - 6:26
    just so you can practice
  • 6:26 - 6:27
    moving that little triad shape
  • 6:27 - 6:29
    from one part of the neck to the other.
  • 6:29 - 6:31
    So, we are using the one that
    looks like a D chord.
  • 6:31 - 6:33
    We're going to be moving it...
  • 6:33 - 6:34
    I'm going to talk about
    the root notes now.
  • 6:34 - 6:36
    The root note is at the
    8th fret for the first shape,
  • 6:36 - 6:38
    for the G chord:
  • 6:38 - 6:39
    . . .
  • 6:39 - 6:40
    The root note is at the
    13th fret for the C chord:
  • 6:40 - 6:42
    . . .
  • 6:42 - 6:43
    Back to the 8th fret:
  • 6:43 - 6:44
    . . .
  • 6:44 - 6:47
    And down to the 3rd fret:
  • 6:47 - 6:49
    . . .
  • 6:49 - 6:52
    So, last time through I was
    describing where the first finger sat.
  • 6:52 - 6:54
    That time I'm talking about
    where the root note is.
  • 6:54 - 6:56
    What fret the root note is on,
  • 6:56 - 6:58
    because that's the bit
    I really want you to remember.
  • 6:58 - 7:00
    So, here we go, I'll play the chords now,
  • 7:00 - 7:03
    and I'm going to be calling
    the fret that the root note is in,
  • 7:03 - 7:05
    which is the note that you'll be playing
  • 7:05 - 7:07
    in this case with your third finger.
  • 7:07 - 7:09
    So. Important: check out the shapes,
  • 7:09 - 7:11
    make sure you know where they are
  • 7:11 - 7:12
    and then have a go at playing along.
  • 7:12 - 7:13
    Here we go:
  • 7:13 - 7:14
    So, 3, 4. G Chord.
  • 7:14 - 7:16
    . . .
  • 7:16 - 7:17
    That was at the 8th fret.
  • 7:17 - 7:18
    To C.
  • 7:18 - 7:19
    Right up in the 13th fret you should be now.
  • 7:19 - 7:21
    Back to G.
  • 7:21 - 7:22
    . . .
  • 7:22 - 7:23
    To the root note at the 8th.
  • 7:23 - 7:24
    To D.
  • 7:24 - 7:25
    . . .
  • 7:25 - 7:26
    And again.
  • 7:26 - 7:27
    . . .
  • 7:27 - 7:29
    You should be at the 8th fret now.
  • 7:29 - 7:30
    You're going to C.
  • 7:30 - 7:31
    . . .
  • 7:31 - 7:31
    Right up to the 13th.
  • 7:31 - 7:32
    Back to G.
  • 7:32 - 7:33
    . . .
  • 7:33 - 7:34
    Which had the root note in the 8th.
  • 7:34 - 7:35
    And then to D.
  • 7:35 - 7:36
    . . .
  • 7:36 - 7:42
    The third shape that we talked about,
  • 7:42 - 7:42
    I'll be calling it shape 3,
  • 7:42 - 7:46
    is the one that's kind of based around
    the 10th or 12th fret,
  • 7:46 - 7:48
    and the root note is on the 3rd string,
  • 7:48 - 7:50
    so we've got our third finger
  • 7:50 - 7:52
    on the root note, little finger underneath,
  • 7:52 - 7:54
    and first finger back in the 10th fret.
  • 7:54 - 7:56
    So, it's going 12-12-10.
  • 7:56 - 7:58
    And that is the G chord.
  • 7:58 - 7:59
    . . .
  • 7:59 - 8:01
    Now, if we want to change that one to
  • 8:01 - 8:02
    a C chord,
  • 8:02 - 8:05
    we need to find the note C
    on the 3rd string.
  • 8:05 - 8:08
    So, again,
  • 8:08 - 8:09
    those of you who know where that is,
    go to it now,
  • 8:09 - 8:12
    and for those of you who don't,
  • 8:12 - 8:15
    we're going to slide our shape
    right down here,
  • 8:15 - 8:17
    because the note C is the 5th fret
    of the 3rd string.
  • 8:17 - 8:19
    So we are using that
    same shape again:
  • 8:19 - 8:21
    . . .
  • 8:21 - 8:22
    And we've got our little C chord.
  • 8:22 - 8:23
    And then we go back to G:
  • 8:23 - 8:26
    . . .
  • 8:26 - 8:27
    With the root note on the 12th fret.
  • 8:27 - 8:29
    And then we've got to get to D.
  • 8:29 - 8:30
    Hopefully you remember,
  • 8:30 - 8:31
    D is just one tone
  • 8:31 - 8:33
    or two semitones, two frets,
  • 8:33 - 8:34
    higher than the C.
  • 8:34 - 8:37
    So that would put the root note
    at the 7th fret.
  • 8:37 - 8:38
    . . .
  • 8:38 - 8:40
    First finger is obviously going to be
    in the 5th fret for that one.
  • 8:40 - 8:43
    So, it's just going 7-7-5.
  • 8:43 - 8:46
    And again, we take it through that
    same sequence again,
  • 8:46 - 8:48
    So this time we have
  • 8:48 - 8:49
    G
  • 8:49 - 8:50
    . . .
  • 8:50 - 8:51
    down to C
  • 8:51 - 8:53
    . . .
  • 8:53 - 8:54
    back to G
  • 8:54 - 8:55
    . . .
  • 8:55 - 8:56
    and then down to D
  • 8:56 - 8:58
    . . .
  • 8:58 - 8:59
    Here we go again:
  • 8:59 - 9:00
    G
  • 9:00 - 9:01
    . . .
  • 9:01 - 9:01
    Down to C
  • 9:01 - 9:03
    . . .
  • 9:03 - 9:04
    Back up to G
  • 9:04 - 9:05
    . . .
  • 9:05 - 9:06
    And then to D
  • 9:06 - 9:08
    . . .
  • 9:08 - 9:10
    OK, here we go,
  • 9:10 - 9:11
    I'm going to play some
    chords for you now
  • 9:11 - 9:13
    to have a go at moving that around,
  • 9:13 - 9:14
    Here we go, so:
  • 9:14 - 9:15
    2, 3, 4
  • 9:15 - 9:16
    G:
  • 9:16 - 9:18
    . . .
  • 9:18 - 9:19
    Sliding it down to C:
  • 9:19 - 9:21
    . . .
  • 9:21 - 9:22
    Back to G:
  • 9:22 - 9:24
    . . .
  • 9:24 - 9:25
    And then up to the D chord:
  • 9:25 - 9:26
    . . .
  • 9:26 - 9:27
    or rather DOWN to the D chord.
  • 9:27 - 9:28
    . . .
  • 9:28 - 9:29
    G
  • 9:29 - 9:30
    . . .
  • 9:30 - 9:30
    Over the C.
  • 9:30 - 9:31
    . . .
  • 9:31 - 9:33
    Down the... root note at the 5th string...
  • 9:33 - 9:34
    5th fret.
  • 9:34 - 9:35
    Back up to G:
  • 9:35 - 9:36
    . . .
  • 9:36 - 9:39
    And then to the D.
