  Welcome to the course: Overview & Guide

As the title said: Welcome to the course!

In this course we'll be going over the foundations of triads. How they're constructed, which types there are and most importantly, how to cover them on guitar.

We will leave no fret or string unturned. We will be covering everything thoroughly.

We will start by explaining how triads are constructed, then we will move on to isolating each type of triad and then we will combine them all using drills and tunes.

All of these come with backing tracks and videos to play along to.

I sincerely hope this course will help you along in mastering the guitar. These are things I practiced (had to practice at the conservatory) and still practice to this day, so this is a very important subject.

If there any questions, tips, suggestions, ... just let me know. There's a discussion available on every lesson.

Happy training!

We will start off by quickly explaining how triads are constructed and we'll apply it directly to the guitar.

All types and inversions of triads will be discussed and presented from the get go, as will all the shapes on all the strings across the whole fretboard.

When we're done with that, we focus on dealing with the inversions, key by key, per string set.
In other words, we play each triad type in one key across the fretboard in all inversions before moving on to the next key and we do this with major, minor, diminished and augmented.

After that we move on to fixing the shape (root position, first inversion or second inversion) and modulate through the keys.
When we've gone through all the keys we move on to the next inversion until we've covered the entire guitar.

The next step is playing through the keys in one position and changing the inversions.

After that I have some jazz standards written out for you, where (like in the previous phase) we stay in position and change the inversions.
All the positions are written out for you, so you can just follow along.

We will be utilising the circle of fifths for modulating through the keys, but I also included some other intervallic modulations such as major and minor thirds, major seconds and tritones.
