Watch the Triads: Level 3 online guitar lesson by Chris Buono from Guitar Gym: Triad Workouts

This first Level 3 triads workout puts these three-note chords across the neck horizontally starting from the root position in the key of C. You'll play through the C major triads as you zigzag your way to the top string set. When you reach the root position C major chord on the 3-2-1 string set you'll make a parallel change to C augmented and proceed to zigzag your way back to the bottom string set where you'll make another parallel change to Cm. The string of minor chords will change over to diminished triads in C on the top string set only to flow through the same back and forth motions to the bottom string set where you'll come back to the initial C major triad that started it all.
