Watch the Everybody Needs a Lolly online guitar lesson by Matthieu Brandt from Guitar Lab: Triads and Hendrixian Double Stops
Playing triads as a guitar player has anoher advantage; in up-tempo songs you can quickly move between chords. You'll avoid blunt barre chords or jumping all around the fretboard. Your arrangement will sound smooth without a lot of movement of your left hand.
The example we'll use is an R & B groove reminiscent of the "Everybody Needs Somebody To Love". Hold on to your hat!
