Daily Triads

This lesson will explore are all the triads for daily practice in one octave.

In this example we'll start with "C" major and progress through the cycle of fourths.

(The cycle of fourths is a way of moving through every key signature. If you play the first four notes of a "C" major scale you'll play C D E F - That means "F" is a perfect fourth above "C", so the next triad is "F" major. After "F" major, we'll play "Bb" major, because starting at "F" we have the notes F G A Bb. So "Bb" is the next triad in the cycle of fourths. The whole Cycle of fourths is:
C, F, Bb, Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, B, E, A, D, G ).

The lesson called "Only 7 Triads" will help you with the note names.

Here they are for this example:

C,E,G

F,A,C

Bb,D,F

Eb,G,Bb

Ab,C,Eb

Db,F,Ab

Gb,Bb,Db

B,D#,F#

E,G#,B

A,C#,E

D,F#,A

and G,B,D

These triads are all in root position , meaning that we play the root, third and fifth of each triad in that order.

Enjoy these triads, and try them a little faster every day. Make sure you can name every note before you play it, and work on a few different fingerings for each triad.
