A triad is the simplest possible version of a chord. They often confound us guitarists, because we are used to playing full chords, which contain several more notes than the pure Root, 3rd, and 5th. As a result, we mostly avoid using them, perhaps to our own detriment.
This warm-up serves to showcase how we can use triad inversions to move through chord progressions in a controlled, connected way. I've taken a I IV I V progression in B minor, and arpeggiated each, staying in position, and in the same string groupings - using knowledge of inversions to flow from one structure to the next.
Admittedly, this is no easy task! It requires understanding of all 3 inversions of each chord, on each particular set of strings.
It's a serious fretboard mapping brain workout!
