Watch the Evolving Triads Vol. 1 online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Chord Studies: Evolving Triads Vol. 1

In this set of examples, you'll be learning how to voice lead a I IV V progression in the key of A, which is A, D, E. And also a I VI V, which would be A, F#minor to E. We'll talk about how to play the different chord voicings on the first, second, and third strings, second, third, and fourth, and the third, fourth, and fifth strings. You'll learn each inversion and you'll have it referenced to a chord form out of the CAGED or the EDCAG system. We'll also talk about what you can do with your picking hand. You can hybrid pick to get a keyboard sound. You can palm mute and pick to get bubble parts. You can also arppeggiate the chords. And most importantly we'll talk about good voice leading, which will allow you to sustain common tones between two different chords. That gives you a nice, full sound.
