In this special guitar lesson, we’re joined by Grammy-nominated guitarist and Musicians Institute graduate David Becker to talk about the power of triads. Triads are the building blocks of music, so it’s important to gain a solid understanding of what they are and how they can work for you.

For this lesson, we’ll be sticking to the key of C major, however, these shapes can be used in any key. It’s important to start off by really mastering them in one key first before moving onto others. Remember to incorporate this into your daily practice time. It won’t take long before you have mastered these shapes and can begin using them in more musical ways.
