Watch the E Major Diatonic Triads online guitar lesson by Joe Dalton from Fretboard Epiphanies

These triads are in 2nd inversion. Don’t let the 6/8 time signature throw you. When you are playing this, think 2 groups of three notes. 1-2-3, 1-2-3 or 1-2-3, 4-5-6. The bold numbers are accented. Accenting a note means to bring it out. Letting it stand out could mean playing it louder than the other notes. Very often, I’m playing the other notes quieter. This way I’m not playing every note too heavily.
