Triads can be used in many different ways, so a thorough understanding of them all over the neck is extremely functional. By learning how to move vertically and horizontally over the neck within a given chord, you can add more interest to rhythm playing, as well as incorporate the arpeggios of these shapes into single note soloing ideas.
In this lesson I outline the way that I think about triad positions of a single chord. I use the C major triad to demonstrate the different positions and inversion shapes that we can use, including wide interval triads (at the end of the video). The shapes are covered vertically first (vertical being moving between strings in a single position) followed by horizontally moving through the inversions on each string set.
