You want to include triads in your jazz guitar vocabulary. Triads are some of the strongest melodies we have available and in the video I am going to go over 5 easy exercises to build your triad vocabulary on jazz!!

For each of the exercises I also have a jazz lick using the pattern so you can hear how it sounds in context. Of course you are practicing scales and arpeggios, but it is difficult to put that into real music. But there are also ways to practice that are a lot easier to put into a solo.

I find that working a bit at these patterns really helps:

- Making more interesting solo lines
- Using the things you practice for technique
- Having a better overview of arpeggios on the neck
- Knowing the scales and music theory

As a small extra feature this also demonstrates some of the places where I use sweeping or economy picking!!

Thanks so much for checking out my weekly lesson at Musicians Unite!! I hope you found these triad exercises interesting and helpful!!

Please check back next week for another lesson, and in the meantime please catch up with me on my website and social media pages!!
