Using Triads Can Change Your Playing

The use of triads is an amazing way to access both inside and outside playing.
The easy shape of the triad, with only three notes, is a super great way to ease in on getting altered sounds into your playing.
I demonstrate how you can add simple triad ideas to different chord functions and get a clear less to more altered sound.
