Watch the Major Triads online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Guitar Lab: Slash Chord Science

This lesson covers the three diagonal one note per string arpeggios for the major triad. In diagram one these arpeggio forms are clearly notated with alternating red and black chord tone numbers. The lowest form (in terms of pitch) is diagrammed in red and is based on the C form from the CAGED system. By viewing each group of three adjacent strings, all three inversions are available: second inversion on strings six through four, root position on strings five through three, first inversion on strings four through two, and second inversion on strings three through one.

The next one note per string arpeggio is diagrammed in black and is based on the G form from the CAGED system. The inversions are as follows: root position on strings six through four, first inversion on strings five through three, second inversion on strings four through two, and root position on strings three through one.

The final one note per string arpeggio is diagrammed in red and is based on the E form from the CAGED system. The inversions are as follows: first inversion on strings six through four, second inversion on strings five through three, root position on strings four through two, and first inversion on strings three through one.
