October 9, 2014 | 3 string major triads with Don Julin
Music theory is most easily understood stripped down to its simplest elements. Recording artist and best-selling author Don Julin gives concise demonstration of the triad chord spelled up and down the fretboard spelled in its purest form, the 3-note chord.
Though we like to confine the 3-note spellings to the three thickest strings, Don covers it beautifully back and forth, moving across the strings, and gives a credible reason to do so, thinking the voicings from the top (3rd on top, 5th on top, root on top).
It's easy and brilliant at the same time.
