More about this course

Do you wish you had a better understanding of the guitar neck?

Are you tired of just playing open chords or barre chords?

Are you ready to spice up your rhythm and lead playing?

If you've answered yes to any or all of these questions they you're ready for this class. In this class Triads for Guitar on Strings 1, 2, and 3 I'm going to change the way you look at the guitar neck forever. Once I learned how to play triads I've never looked at guitar the same way again. They have greatly improved my ability to play the guitar and understand chords whether I'm playing rhythm or lead guitar. Now I would like to teach you how to play triads on strings 1,2, and 3. 

What will you learn in this lesson?

  • How to play and construct triads
  • You will learn the 3 different inversions of a triad
  • You will learn how knowing triads can help you rhythm playing
  • You will learn how triads can really help your lead playing
  • Major triads
  • Minor triads
  • Diminished triads
  • Augmented triads
  • How to create all 4 triads starting from the major triad
  • How to play a chord progression in root position
  • How to play a chord progression in 1st inversion
  • How to play a chord progression in 2nd inversion
  • How to play a chord progression in a close set of triads 

Why should you sign up for my course?

  • My name is Chris Rupp and I'm the founder of the GuitArmy.
  • I've been teaching guitar full time for over 19 years.
  • I have taught more then 35,000 individual private guitar lessons.
  • I teach guitar students online all over the world.
  • I have a bachelors of music degree from the world renowned Berklee College of Music where I studied with some of the best guitar players on earth. 
  • I created a successful line of guitar instruction DVDs that sold very well and garnered the attention of the "As Seen on TV" folks.
  • I love teaching guitar and helping students become better musicians through the guitar.
  • I will answer your personal questions and help you with learning the material in this lesson.

With GuitArmy guitar lessons on Arbington you will learn: basic open chords, power chords, barre chords, scales, major scales, minor scales, learn to solo, improvisation, beginner guitar lessons, intermediate guitar lessons, advanced guitar lessons, guitar riffs, rock licks, guitar licks, rhythm guitar, songwriting, modes on guitar, how to read guitar tablature, play a guitar solo, triads for guitar, and much more. 

Why should I take your class and not just learn from YouTube?

You can try to learn guitar from YouTube but eventually you'll figure out there's so many videos out there is very hard to put the information together in a coherent way. I have students come to me all the time that are tired of watching random guitar videos on YouTube and don't know how to put the information together. With this class you can get a very experienced teacher that can assist you with the learning process. 

The course project

For this project I would like you to demonstrate that you can play at least 8 of these triads.

You can do this project by:

  • uploading a link to a video of you playing the triads.
  • upload an mp3 of you playing the triads.
  • Last but not least, if the first 2 options seem too hard to do you can just upload pictures of yourself playing the triads.

Any participation would be greatly appreciated.
